The Linkopings attacker broke the deadlock in the 20th minute before doubling the lead five minutes later.

The Black Queens came close to scoring but were unfortunate upfront.

Coach Mercy Tagoe’s ladies will host the Super Falcons in the return leg to be played in Ghana on Sunday, October 24, at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Ghana will have to win by a 3-0 margin to progress to the next round of the qualifiers.
