Black Queens defender Janet Egyir was named Woman of the Match as Ghana’s female senior national team got off to a winning start in the WAFU Zone B championship against Senegal on Wednesday evening.

Two second half goals from Evelyn Badu and Mukarama Abdullai helped Ghana to secure a comfortable 2-0 win.

Evelyn Badu broke the deadlock of the game in 74th minutes as she slotted home a nice finish.

Substitute Mukarama Abdullai made it 2-0 for Ghana in additional time as the Black Queens wrapped up their win.

Egyir is no stranger to top-notch performances at the competition following her exploits in the maiden edition, where she ended the competition as the overall best player.

Ghana will face Togo in the next group game on Friday 10 May 2019.
