WAFU Cup: Ghana top Group after beating Guinea

The Black Stars ‘B’ of Ghana defeated their Guinean counterparts by 2-0 in their first Group A game of the 2017 WAFU Cup of Nations at Cape Coast Sports Stadium on Thursday.

Second half goals from Stephen Sarfo and Kwame Kizito saw the host Nation run away with all three maximum points.

Berekum Chelsea’s Sarfo scored the first goal when a cross from the right by Felix Addo was turned home by the chest of Stephen Sarfo from four yards.

Seven minutes later the Black Stars did find their second goal after two substitutes combined when Razak Patrick headed a right wing cross back into the path of Kwame Kizito and he duly headed home from close range, 2-0.

In the 84th minute Guinea nearly pulled a goal back when a spectacular 30-yard free-kick from Seydouba Camara struck the woodwork and bounced away from danger.

Ghana now top  group A with three points and will face Mali on Saturday in the next game.
