Ghana joined Nigeria as the high profile names to get knocked out of the 2020 CAF Women’s Olympic Qualifying Tournament, following their 1-0 defeat to Kenya on Tuesday.
The Black Queens lost the second-leg of the tie 1-0; after extra time, having played a goalless result in the first-leg.
Ghana, who are three times runner ups of the Africa Women’s Cup of Nations, have now failed to reach any Olympic Games, having failed in five previous attempts.
Ghana’s Black Queens’ hope of making a first time appearance at the Olympic Games has been dashed after suffering a 0-1 defeat to the Harambee Starlets in Kenya on Tuesday afternoon:
