AWCON 2018: Ghana 1-1 Cameroon – Match Reports
The Black Queens of Ghana have been crashed out of the 2018 Women’s Cup of Nations after drawing 1-1 with Cameroon in their final group match on Friday at the Accra Sports Stadium.
Ghana needed to win to progress to the next round of the competition.
The Queens kicked off on a bright note and dominated the first half of the game and their hard work was rewarded with a goal after Portia Boakye’s well dispatched free kick went straight into the net.
The Indomitable Lions were mistakenly gifted a penalty when goalkeeper Nana Ama Asantewaa fouled Aboudi Onguene in the box in the 36th minute.
Captain Manie Christine Patience expertly converted to draw her side level.
Bashir Hayford’s side continued to knocked on the doors but failed to break through the defense of the Cameroonians.
Defender Linda Eshun could have scored the winning goal deep inside added time but her low grounder would be saved by Cameroonian goalkeeper Ngo Ndom.
The result was however not favourable to aid Ghana into next semi-finals after Mali defeated Algeria 3-2 in the other game.
