Black Queens winger Sherifatu Sumaila has hailed her teammates after their strong finish at the Turkish Women’s Championship.
Ghana defeated Kenya 3-1 to finish at runners up at their maiden appearance at the competition.
“Proud Runners up for the 2020 Turkish Women’s Tournament. Good job Ladies,” she posted on Twitter.
Captain Elizabeth Addo was in her element at the Starlight Sport Complex by bagging a brace and then setting up Grace Asantewaa later in the game.
Addo expertly converted a free-kick from the edge of the box as early as the ninth minute before completing her double with a penalty strike 8 minutes into the second half. Striker Princella Adubea won the penalty for the Queens.
A neat exchange between Addo and Asantewaa had the young midfielder hit high a measured shot that flew past the Kenyan goalkeeper to give Ghana a 3-0 lead.
Kenya managed to get a consolation goal in stoppage time
