Ghana’s male and female football representatives for this year’s All Africa Games both booked their tickets for the competition with hard fought games over the weekend.

The male competition features U-23 sides, so the Black Meteors were in action against Mozambique for that final qualification berth, the first leg in Maputo having ended 1-0 in favour of Mozambique.

Ghana overturned the deficit, though, picking up a 2-0 win to progress 2-1 on aggregate. A first half own goal from the visitors gave Ghana the lead, before Bright Adjei struck to put Ghana through to the final games.

The Meteors won Gold at the last games, and would be expected to undergo a similarly impressive campaign this time around.

The Black Queens were also in action, and drew 2-2 away to Zimbabwe to record a 4-3 aggregate victory.

The first leg in Ghana ended 2-1 to the Queens, and the return leg almost saw the same score line.

But with minutes to go, with Zimbabwe leading 2-1, the Queens grabbed a late goal to level matters and clinch the tie on aggregate.

The 2015 All Africa Games is slated for Brazzaville, Congo, in September this year.
