By James Agberebi:

Ghana Black Queens beat Banyana Banyana of South Africa 1-0 on Friday in Yaounde to finish third at this year's Africa Women's Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

The only goal of the game was scored by Linda Eshun in the 49th minute.

This is the third time Ghana will be picking up the bronze at AWCON.

Their two previous third place finishes were at the 2000 and 2004 AWCON both held in South Africa.

South Africa were third in the 2006 and 2010 editions.

Ghana lost 1-0 to hosts Cameroon in the semifinal of this year's AWCON, while South Africa also lost 1-0 in the semifinal to the Super Falcons of Nigeria.
