Ghana held their arch rivals Nigeria to a one-all draw on Match Day Two of the Africa Womens Cup of Nations in Cameroun.

The Nigerians, nine-time champions of the AWCON, struck first at the Stade Municipal de Limbe through 22-year-old forward Asisat Oshoala, who took advantage of a defensive error by the Ghanaian defence during a free-kick. It was the Arsenal Ladies star's fourth goal in two games, following her hat trick in the Super Falcons' opening fixture.

The Black Queens, three-time AWCON silver medallists, fought hard to get back into the game, and they got their reward when a penalty awarded them was converted by Elizabeth Addo to level the scores before the half-time break.

The second half was tightly contested, with many close chances, but both sides failed to produce a winner.

The result leaves both sides on four points each in Group B, following their opening day wins (Nigeria beat Mali 6-0 while Ghana beat Kenya 3-1).

Mali and Kenya meet in the other group fixture later tonight (November 23) at 18.00 GMT.

Ghana, participating in their 11th AWCON, are eyeing a first title.
