AFCON 2021 QUALIFIERS: BLACK STARS QUASH SOUTH AFRICA IN CAPE COAST

Black Stars have begun their AFCON 2021 qualifying campaign in a flyer after seeing off South Africa at the Cape Coast Stadium.

Goals from Thomas Partey and Kudus Mohammed handed Black Stars a 2-0 win against Bafana Bafana. In a cagey opening first half at the Cape Coast, it had to take a Thomas Partey goal at the stroke of halftime to give Ghana the lead.

The South African’s came in strong the second half searching for the equalizer but the Ghana defense stayed resolute as they blocked any attacks from them.

Substitute Kudus Mohammed put the icing on the cake as he scored in the 83rd minute to double Ghana’s lead.

Elsewhere, Ghana’s group opponents, Sudan recorded a 4-0 win over Sao Tome and Principe. Sudan and Ghana now lead Group A with 3 points apiece, followed by South Africa and Sao Tome and Principe with zero each.

The Black Stars will next travel to play Sao Tome and Principe in matchday of the AFCON 2021 qualifiers on November 18.
