Senegal qualified to the quarter-finals of the WAFU ‘A Women’s Cup semi-finals after a 2-0 win over Cape Verde in a Group A clash on Thursday in Bo.
Goals from forwards Mbayang Sow and Mama Diop in either half were enough for Senegal to bag their second win in the tournament and qualify to the next phase of the competition.
Sow separated the two sides with a 33 minute left foot shot that displaced Cape Verde goalie Sheila Goncalves before Diop scored another in the 67 minutes to seal the much needed victory.
Senegal now seat at the top of group-A with six points four points of second -place host Sierra Leone who have secured two draws from two games played in the competition so far.
In front of a partisan crowd Guinea forced host nation Sierra Leone to a barren draw in the other Group A clash. It was an improved performance from the Guineans after their opening 1-0 loss to Senegal after holding the host to a stalemate.
Elsewhere in the Northern city of Makeni Gambia who lost their first match to Mali 6-0 will face Liberia on Friday while Guinea Bissau battles it out with Mali later in the day in Group B.
