Queens For DR Congo

Ghana's senior female national team, the Black Queens, will travel to the Democratic Republic of Congo tomorrow to play the Congolese in the second leg of their 2008 Olympic qualifying encounter this weekend.

The Queens go into this encounter with a 3-1 advantage and with the eventual winners advancing to the next round of the qualifying series.

The Queens, camped at the Prampram Soccerman Centre of Excellence, have stepped up their training for the tricky assignment ahead as the Congolese, who have never beaten the Ghanaians before, and are therefore hoping to make amends.

In other matches around the continent, Nigeria, beaten 0-1 by Algeria, host the return encounter; Zimbabwe host South Africa who are leading 2-1 while Morocco play Ethiopia.
