Women’s AFCON: Ghana 3-1 Kenya
Ghana’s Black Queens beat their Kenya counterparts by 3-1 in the ongoing African Women Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
Three second half goals from Samira Suleman, Elizabeth Addo and Portia Boakye rounded off the Kenyans to give the Black Queens their opening win of the tournament.
Esse Akida shot the Harambee Starlets of Kenya ahead in the first half with an explicit volley when the Queens defence were at sixes and sevens.
The Kenyans pressed for the equaliser but the Ghanaian defence were resolute.
Portia Boakye capped her stupendous performance on the day with a Beckham-like free kick in additional time to make it 3-1 for Ghana.
Ghana will take on Mali in the next game of the competition with a clash with Nigeria in the last group game.
Nigeria now sits pretty at the top of Group B with a plus six goals advantage.
