He went on to applaud the Black Queens on winning all their 10 matches without any loss until their match with Namibia

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo commended the Black Queens on their impressive and incredible performances during the State Of The Nation’s Address, Tuesday, 27 February 2024, at the Parliament House.

The president admitted the Black Queens do not get much attention as the Black Stars do but are performing creditably.

“Mr Speaker, the senior women’s team, the Black Queens, who do not get half the attention the Black Stars get, have been performing quite creditably,” the president said.

He went on to applaud the Black Queens on winning all their 10 matches without any loss until their match with Namibia in Windhoek in December 2023, where they lost in the final qualifying round for the 2024 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations.

“They had gone for 10 matches without any loss until last December’s when they lost narrowly to Namibia in Windhoek in the final qualifying round for the 2024 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations,” President Akufo-Addo noted.

“Even though they lost narrowly to Zambia in the first leg of the qualifiers for the 2024 Olympic Games, let us wish them well in the second leg to be played in Lusaka tomorrow, and hope they give us something to cheer about,” the president said.
