Tokyo 2020: Black Queens face stern Kenya test in Accra today

The Black Queens will host Harambee Starlets today in the first leg of the third round of the 2020 Olympic qualifiers

The match will kick off at exactly 3:30 pm at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Coach Mercy Tagoe’s side will be looking to seize the initiative at home ahead of the return fixture which is scheduled for next Tuesday at Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani.

The Queens start as slight favorites having been boosted by the arrival of Ernestina Abambila and also experience players like Priscilla Okyere, Portia Boakye, and Fafali Dumehasi in post.

Kenya eliminated Malawi in the first round of qualifiers with Ghana thumping Gabon 5-0 on aggregate.

The African qualifiers to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics will run through to the fifth and final round later in January 2020.
