Black Queens head coach Nora Hauptle says her girls are ready to step up to the next level when they face Zambia on Friday, February 23.

Ghana face Zambia in the third round of qualifiers for the 2024 Olympic Games to be staged in Paris, France, later this year.

The Queens have won 10 of their last 11 games across all competitions including two ties in the pursuit of a first-ever Olympic appearance.

The fixture against the Copper Queens will be the first real test for the Ghana senior women's national team as they face a team in the top five places on the continent.

Speaking during her presser ahead of the game, the Swiss trainer said her side will be ready for the tough task ahead.

"Zambia, of course, is a big opponent. They have been at the World Cup. They played 21 games last year and have good individual players so I think it's a must-win and we want to win," she said.

"We want to face the top individual players with a top team. This is our cradle and we are working properly and excited that we can start tomorrow.

All 23 players have been involved in the team's last two training sessions with the head coach boasting a full house for the game.

This will be the second meeting between Ghana and Zambia after the former lost 3-2 in a friendly game in 2018.

The game at the Accra Sports Stadium kicks off at 17:00 GMT with the second leg set for February 28.
