by | Jul 3, 2022 | African News, Football Africa, Sport News | 0 comments

Hosts Morocco kickstarts the 2022 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations campaign off to a bright start after their hard-fought 1-0 win over a gallant Burkina Faso at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Sports Complex.

The Atlas ladies narrowly won their Group A opener as captain Ghizlane Chebbak’s scored in the 29th minute.

The strike lacked power but was good enough to deceive Burkinabe goalkeeper Mariam Ouattara, 19, who could have done better.

The host nation’s next outing in the TotalEnergies Women’s Africa Cup of Nations will be against Uganda in Rabat on Tuesday.

WAFCON matchday two in Group A will take place on Sunday when the Ugandan Cranes open their account against Senegal. Zambian and Cameroon battle it out in their Group B opener at the Stade Mohamed.

It was the first match at a WAFCON final in four years after the 2020 edition was cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic, which the Confederation of African Football (Caf) had said it was reluctant to do.
