The Black Queens in Ghana defeated Bayana Bayana in South Africa through a one-man goal in their final match for the former Africa Women's Cup of Nations (AWCON) match yesterday at the refurbished Accra Sports Stadium.
Striker Samira Suleman went home well with a well-worked corner kick after 22 minutes, giving Queens Queens his first victory before the match after three tries.
Black Queens played two friendly matches: a 3-2 defeat to Zambia and a 1-1 draw with Kenya before the conflict with South Africa.
The win would serve as a great motivation for the team because they look forward to reaching their host and win agenda when Total-sponsored AWCON begins on November 17th.
Queensna entered the game in an effort to give the Ghanaians a taste of what would be expected of them under AWCON.
It was a great display from Coach Bashiru Hayford and his accusations as they took the game off the neck scruff and showed some quality football with brilliant exchanges from the defense to half of their opponents.
South Africans were equally good, except that they blew pressure from Queens and made a few attacks, especially in the first half, which was a very balanced game for both teams.
In the second half, however, Queensna saw the game dominate and tried very hard to double their advantage while Bayana Bayana was still determined.
The home team almost had his well deserved other goals, but the visitors were afraid of the crossbar after a 56-minute free kick from Elizabeth Addo, who pushed the post to South Africa's relief.
Popularly known as Ama Pele, Addo had a wonderful game like his nice hand and dribbles got the fans on their feet very often throughout the game.
Queens would meet Algeria in AWCON's opening match at the same place on Saturday and would radiate self-esteem after yesterday's game.
It was also a good preparation for South Africans who seem to be a force to count on when AWCON begins.
