Morocco 2-0 Ghana: Black Queens lost in international friendly at Abdallah Sports Complex

Ghana’s hopes of beginning their training tour in Morocco with victory were quashed after losing 2-0 to the hosts on Tuesday evening.

A brace from Rosella Ayan Ani were enough for Morocco as Black Queens suffer their first defeat of the training tour.

Black Queens were defeated 2-0 by Morocco in an international friendly played on Tuesday night at the Prince Abdallah Sports Complex in Rabat.

The match was organised through the Ghana Football Association’s exchange program with the Royal Moroccan Football Federation.

The Moroccans dominated the game from start to finish, scoring in the 48th minute when Rosella Ayan Ani raced through and finished calmly.

She then scored her second goal of the game in the 75th minute to seal the North Africans’ victory.

The game served as a warm-up for the home team, which will compete in the 2022 Women’s Afcon, which Morocco will host later this year. This is Black Queens’ first game since October last year when Nigeria denied them a chance at the Women’s African Cup of Nations.

Meanwhile, the Queens failed to qualify for the competition after being eliminated by Nigeria.
