AWCON 2016: Queens set up semis date with hosts Cameroon

The Black Queens have set up a semifinal date with host nation Cameroon after thrashing Mali 3-1 in their final group game at the ongoing 2016 Women’s African Cup of Nations.

The victory ensured Ghana sealed second spot behind Nigeria in Group B and will now face the Lionesses in the first semifinal game on Tuesday November 29 in Yaounde.

Against Mali on Saturday, the Black Queens went up just before the break through central defender Linda Eshun.

Samira Suleman doubled the lead on 68 minutes before captain Elizabeth Addo converted a penalty on 79 minutes.

Binta Diarra grabbed a consolation for the Malians three minutes from time.

In the other semifinal game, Nigeria who topped Group B courtesy superior goals over Ghana will play hosts to South Africa in Limbe also on Tuesday.
