The Black Queens of Ghana suffered a disappointing loss in their quest for Olympic qualification, succumbing to a 1-0 defeat against the Copper Queens of Zambia.

A few minutes into the first half, the world’s most expensive female player Rachael Kundananji gave Zambia the lead with a spectacular chip.

Black Queens’ Evelyn Badu came close to snatching the leveler just on the stroke of halftime, but her effort missed the target by inches.

All efforts by the players and technical team of the Black Stars proved futile as it ended 1-0 in favor of the Zambians after full time.

Under Hauptke’s guidance, the team has now lost only twice in 12 games, with the previous defeat also against Zambia in the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations (WAFCON) final leg.

Despite Ghana’s impressive track record, they were unable to overcome Zambia’s early advantage. Notable efforts from players like Doris Boaduwaa and Evelyn fell short of turning the tide in favor of the Black Queens.

All hope is not lost for the Queens as they will travel to Ndola for the second leg encounter on Wednesday at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Zambia.

Meanwhile, Medeama Soccer Club, who are representing Ghana in the CAF Champions League, faced a setback in their knockout hopes following a 1-0 defeat to tournament favorites Al Ahly at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

Medeama, who now sit bottom of Group D with four points, will play their last group game against CR Belouizdad away from home.
