Abigail Sakyiwaa came on for Mafia Nyame to help readdress the balance in midfield.

The Black Princesses kept the pressure up and forced Mukarama Abdulai to score in the 64th minute off  Ophelia Amponsah’s cross which sent the crowd into a frenzy.

Afi Amenyeku made a crucial save in the 85th minute after a defensive blunder nearly gifted the visitors the equalizer.

The Black Princesses held on to their lead to end the match 2:1 to go top of group A with 6 points.

The Black Princesses will play Uganda in the last group A game on Friday, March 15, 2024 at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.
