AAG: Ghana wins draw, faces Cote d’Ivoire in semis

Monday 14th September , 2015 9:18 am

Ghana’s Black Queens were picked from the drawing of lots held at the ongoing All Africa Games and they will face Cote d’Ivoire in the semi-finals of the women’s football tournament on Wednesday.

The decision was taken at the ad hoc meeting of the Organising Committee of the competition on Monday morning.

The Black Queens were with South Africa in the draw after the two teams ended up with the same number of points and goals after the group matches.

Both teams drew 0-0 and 1-1 in their two group matches and the tie needed to be broken by the drawing of lots as stated in Article 39 of CAF’s rules which states such situations “are to be decided upon by CAF competent bodies in accordance with the regulations of the African Cup of Nations”.

Ghana progresses together with Cameroon out of Group B while South Africa are eliminated. Egypt was supposed to have been the fourth team in the group but they pulled out of the tournament.
