Black Queens held 0-0 by Kenya in Olympic qualifier

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.
