The Black Queens of Ghana have failed to defend their WAFU Zone B title after losing 4-2 on penalties to Nigeria in the semi-finals on Thursday night. 

After a goalless stalemate in regulation time, it had to be decided on penalties and the Super Falcons came up tops.

They converted four of their five penalty kicks with Ghana missing two and scoring two.

Both teams met at the same stage last year with Ghana emerging as winners through penalties and eventually won the competition.

Nigeria will now play host Ivory Coast in the final of the tournament this weekend. 

However, coach of Black Queens, Mercy Quarcoo Tagoe will feel proud of her team, having fought so hard to reach this stage.
