Ghana a played 3-3 draw at the Levy Mwanawasa Sports Stadium in Ndola, Zambia, in the second leg of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games qualifier.

Black Queens lost the first leg 1-0 on Friday in Accra and hence needed to win to stand a chance of progressing to the final round of the qualifiers.

Barbra Banda put the Copper Queens ahead with just 11 minutes played to double Zambia’s aggregate lead.

Gifty Assifuah equalised for Ghana in the 21st minute as the first half ended 1-1 with both sides still having every opportunity to carry the day.

Doris Boaduwaa with 10 minutes into the second half put Ghana ahead.

Kabanga Mpopo levelled the score 2-2 in the 61st minute to bring smiles to the faces of the home supporters as they were worried about Ghana’s performance.

Azumah Bugri scored Ghana’s third in the 65th minute to pile much pressure on the home side.

Nora Hauptle’s charges were exceptional as they played and defended their lead until Barbra Banda struck in the 95th minute to break Black Queens’ heart.

It nearly was a perfect day for Ghana as Nora Hauptle in her pre-match conference said.

Ghana has been eliminated from the Olympic Games qualifiers but must be proud of the fighting spirit they put up in Zambia.

Nora Hauptle will be an excited coach because of the huge progress Ghana has made under her tutelage albeit the team didn’t progress
