The Black Queens, freshly securing their place in the 2024 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations, received a warm welcome upon their return to Ghana on Thursday, December 7.
The team, arriving at Kotoka International Airport after a triumphant campaign in South Africa, faced Namibia in the second leg of the final qualifier.
Under the guidance of Head Coach Nora Hauptle, who assumed the role in February 2023, the Black Queens clinched a hard-fought 3-2 aggregate victory against Namibia. They won 3-1 in the first leg and experienced a 1-0 defeat in the second leg in Pretoria. Despite the setback, Hauptle’s leadership proved crucial to the team’s success.
Representatives from the Ghana Football Association (GFA), including President Kurt Okraku, and members of the Ghana Supporters Union (GSU) were present at the airport to extend a warm reception to the team.
Their infectious enthusiasm and support marked a celebration of the Black Queens’ accomplishment and a collective anticipation of their future endeavors on the continental stage.
