Black Queens captain 'dazzles' in Western Sydney Wanderers' W-League draw

Black Queen's captain Elizabeth Addo produced a headline-grabbing assist for her side Western Sydney Wanderers in their 2-2 draw with Canberra United.

The midfielder picked the ball and slalomed into the opponent's box; hit the bar line and kept her composure to pick out Leena Khamis to score on her 100th W-League game.

Addo was surprisingly named in the Best XI of the just ended African Women's Cup of Nations on home soil.

This raised some eyebrows especially when Ghana failed to progress from the Group stage.

The CAF Technical Study Group will be feeling vindicated with this magical performance at club level.

Addo has also been shortlisted for the 2018 African Women Player of the Year but she is an outsider to win the gong as South Africa's Chrestinah Kgatlana is the firm favourite.
