Black Queens to play Tunisia in Womens AFCON Qualifiers


Ghana’s Black Queens will play Tunisia in the second round of qualifiers for a ticket to the 10th edition of the African Women’s Championship in Cameroon later this year.

The Black Queens will travel for the first leg before hosting their Tunisian opponents in the return leg in a fortnight.

Ghana, Equatorial Guinea, South Africa, Cote D’ Ivoire and Nigeria drew a bye for the first round of qualifiers which began in March 2016.

The Tunisians advanced to the second stage of the qualifiers after eliminating Burkina Faso in the previous round.

Seven teams will emerge from the qualifiers for the Africa Women Cup of Nations to join hosts Cameroon for the final tournament scheduled for 19 November to 3 December 2016.
