Ghanaian Actress, Yvonne Okoro visited the Black Queens team in Abidjan, Ivory Coast to support and promised to give them $10,000 if they qualify in their group to the semi finals for the WAFU Zone B cup competition.
She said, “Your reward awaits you once you go past the group stages and reach the semis.” The Black Queens started their WAFU Championship campaign by thrashing Senegal 2-0 win at the Robert Champroux Stadium in Abidjan.
Evelyn Badu got the opener for the senior national team before former Ghana youth player Mukarama Abdulai doubled the lead with few minutes to end the encounter. The Black Queens’ next match is against neighbours Togo on Friday.
Coach Mercy Tagoe’s side will then face hosts Cote D’Ivoire in their final group match on May 13 at the Robert Champroux Stadium.
