GhanaÔÇÖs Queens dismantle Gladiators

The Black Queens of Ghana convincingly beat the Brave Gladiators of Namibia 3-1 in an international friendly match played at the Hage Geingob Rugby Stadium on Friday afternoon.
The match, which was part of the country’s 24th Independence Day celebratory matches, also served as part of the teams preparation ahead of the Confederation of African (Caf) Women Championships to be held this October, in Windhoek.
Gladiators’ full back, Lovisa Mulunga, opened the score line for the home side in the 5th minute with a cross that ended up in the back of the Ghanaian net.
The Black Queens equalised midway through Agnes Aduako in the 24th minute with a thundering strike to beat a helpless Gladiators’ goalkeeper, Sussana Eises.
Ghana’s second-half substitute, Samira Suleman, stole the show for the visitors with a brace, silencing the home supporters who were cheering on the Black Queens.
Suleiman scored her first goal in the 78th minute and rounded up with a second in the 87th minute against a Gladiators side without coach, Jacky Shipanga, who is currently out of the country.
Stand-in coach, Ace Komeya, however, said it was a good experience for the Gladiators.
“It was a very good match. The girls tried their best. They basically need to pick up experience, although there were some mistakes that led to those goals. We have learnt a lot but we will be ready for the Championships,” said Komeya, a former Tigers striker.
