We will make Zambian Players Lives Difficult – Ghana Coach

Ghana Women’s National Team coach Nora Hauptle is confident her team can overturn the first leg result and qualify to the last round of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games qualifiers at the expense of Zambia.

The Black Queens trail the Copper Queens 0-1 from the first leg and need a good result to secure a fourth-round date with either Morocco or Tunisia, but Hauptle was positive when she spoke at a press conference Tuesday morning.

“We are relaxed. We had a good preparation here. Our performance, the stats and everything was on our side in the home game. We should have gotten a better result out of this. We will ensure that we put ourselves out tomorrow and make the life of the Zambia players difficult,” Hauptle said.

“I watched 21 games for Zambia from last year. I know the team inside out. Of course we screened all the top players. They are good at the moment. They have some high class players. With Olympics and the World Cup they played, I think they must win tomorrow. We want to win tomorrow.”

The Swiss coach believes Ghana has what it takes to deny Zambia their second appearance at the Olympics.

“It’s a bit different but you have a high-class team. Of course a few weaknesses we want to explore but if you work the right way on this team you can be competitive in the 10 teams in the world,” Hauptle said.

Zambia recorded a hard fought 1-0 win away in Ghana on Friday to make a huge step towards qualification to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games

Forward Racheal Kundananji effortlessly dinked the ball over Black Queens goalkeeper Victoria Antwi Agyei for the game’s only goal in the 19th minute.

The second leg between the two teams is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, 28 February 2024 at 18h00 at the Levy Mwanawasa stadium.

Tickets are available at K20 early bird, K30 East, North and South, K50 West and K100 in all Shoprite stores countrywide via CompuTicket.

The winner over the two legs will face either Morocco or Tunisia in the fourth and final round.
