Ghana’s Black Queens were on Friday held to a goalless drawn game by Kenya’s Harambee Starlets in the first leg of the 2020 Olympic Games qualifiers.
The match played at the Accra Stadium saw the Queens miss a number of opportunities including hitting the woodwork in the dying minutes of the game.
Playing in front of a few spectators, the Queens failed to replicate the performance that saw them beat Gabon 5-0 on aggregate in the previous round of qualifiers.
The second leg is scheduled to be played in a fortnight in Nairobi.
Mercy Quarcoo’s side is expected to at least secure a scoring draw in order to stand a chance of progressing to the next stage.
The winner will play the winner of the Zambia-Botswana qualifier in the third round.
