Ghana qualified for the 2024 TotalEnergies Women’s Africa Cup of Nations despite losing Tuesday’s second leg 1-0 away to Namibia in their dramatic final qualifier.

Black Queens survived an almighty scare against Namibia’s Gladiators to seal qualification for the competition to be played in Morocco next year.

It returns Ghana to the continental stage after agonisingly missing out on qualification for the last tournament in 2022.

It will be the first time the Black Queens will be playing in the WAFCON since they last hosted the event in 2018.

Boasting a 3-1 lead from last week’s home first leg, the Black Queens conceded early to trail 1-0 in the away return fixture in Windhoek.

Yet despite a defiant effort, the Gladiators ultimately fell just short as Ghana’s quality and experience shone through when it mattered most.

The Black Queens ultimately prevailed 3-2 overall to clinch their place at Morocco 2024 and return to the continental tournament.
