The Uganda Queen Cranes will face Senegal in the play-off match on Thursday to determine who wins bronze at the 13th African Games in Ghana.

On Monday the defending champions Nigeria eliminated Uganda 2-0 in the first semi-final match played at the Cape Coast Stadium.

After a goalless first half with the two sides creating scoring opportunities, substitute Okah Adaobi broke the deadlock after 74 minutes, and Chiamaka Okwuchukwu made it 2-0 after 89 minutes.

Sheryl Botes, the Uganda Queen Cranes said she was proud of her team that gave their best and have picked a lot of exposure in the African Games. “We played against a very good and experienced Nigerian team that has given us a lot of lessons,” added Botes.

In the second semi-final match hosts Ghana defeated Senegal 3-1.

The Uganda Queen Cranes have so far played four matches at the African Games winning one 2-0 against Ethiopia. They drew 1-1 against Tanzania and Ghana, and lost against Nigeria.
