Ghana qualify for AFCON after draw in South Africa
Ghana have qualified for the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations after their 1-1 draw against South Africa in Johannesburg on Thursday evening.
Mohammed Kudu’s early second-half goal was cancelled by Percy Tau’s strike as the Black Stars settled for a draw to seal qualification with one game left in the qualifying group.
Both teams had a very physical first half but couldn’t find the net in the first 5 minutes of play.
Mohammed Kudus opened the scoring three minutes into the second half after a display of individual brilliance and a very great finish to put Ghana in front, but the lead lasted for only three minutes as South Africa equalized through Percy Tau who shot past Razak Abalora after a fine move.
Black Stars will face Sao Tome and Principe in the last qualifiers group game in Accra on Sunday.
