Ghana’s Black Queens were humiliated 3-0 by South Africa in the ongoing Aisha Buhari Tournament in Nigeria on Friday afternoon.
Coach Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo and her ladies had a difficult task as they failed to compete with the strong and well-organized South African girls.
Hildah Magaia opened the scoring for South Africa after 17minutes when she capitalized on a rebound from an initial effort from Thembi Kgatlana.
Kgatlana then got her name on the score sheet after leaving the Ghanaian defense in tatters following a superb counter break.
The 2018 Africa Women’s best player received a ball, beat Ellen Coleman on a one-one-one situation before getting her way past goalkeeper Fafali Dumahisi in post and slotted into an empty net.
Sibulele Holweni wrapped things up 7minutes from time with a free header from a well-delivered corner kick.
Ghana will next play Cameroon on Sunday in an attempt to make amends for the loss.
The 2021 Aisha Buhari Tournament is being used to honor the first lady of Nigeria.
