Black Queens Nora Hauptle believes the team can cause an upset in Ndola when they face Zambia in the second leg of their Olympic Games qualifier.

The two teams are set to meet again on Wednesday, February 28, in the return leg of their third-round qualifier for the 2024 games to be staged in Paris, France.

The Copper Queens claimed a 1-0 advantage in the earlier meeting at the Accra Sports Stadium on Friday, February 23, which puts Ghana on the brink of elimination.

However, Hauptle is backing her side to cause an upset against the 2023 Women's World Cup participants.

"Unfortunately we couldn’t deliver or succeed against Zambia in the first leg, but we have the second leg against Zambia," said the Swiss trainer.

"I think when we put one goal in, it will explode down there and then we back in April for the fourth round against Morocco and then I hope that the stadium [Accra Sports Stadium] here is cooking and we can get a sold-out stadium."

The Ghana team are already in Ndola as preparations begin for the second encounter against Zambia. The team left Ghana right after the defeat at the Accra Sports Stadium.

The Queens are hoping for a first appearance at the Olympic Games while chasing a first football appearance for Team Ghana since the Black Meteors in 2004.
