Ghana women’s under-20 team stopped the Nigerian team from winning the football event at the All African Games on Thursday, March 21.

Ghana stunned the Falconets in the final of the 2023 All African Games football event on Thursday, March 21, less than a day before the clash between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and the Black Stars of Ghana in an international friendly.

Ahead of the final of the football event, the Falconets were expected to record an easy win over the hosts of the tournament who have been struggling in other events at the games.

The projection of football enthusiasts almost came to past at the Cape Coast Stadium on Thursday night when Loveth Edeh gave Nigeria the lead in the 28th minute following goalkeeper, Afi Amenyeku’s mistake.

“I’m so proud of this team. We never stopped believing even when we went behind,” Basigi said according to CAFonline.
