The Black Satellite of Ghana this afternoon had a sweet revenge on Gambia to book their ticket to the finals of the ongoing Total U-20 African Cup of Nations in Mauritania.
Percious Boah scored a nice freekick in the 33rd minute to give Ghana a 1-0 win over the Gambia at the Olympic Stadium in Nouakchott.
Boah curled the ball beyond the wall and into the top left corner of Saidy Lamin’s goal to register his third goal in the tournament.
It was the second time in the game that Boah was coming close with a freekick and this time, he ensured he kicked the ball past the goalkeeper.
Ghana revenged on the Gambians after losing 2-1 to the Young Scorpions in the group stage with the precious victory handing Ghana a chance to contest for a record fourth title at the Under-20 AFCON.
The Gambians however should have gone to the break on level terms after Danlad’s passing error. But they fluffed the chance.
The Young Scorpions were off to a better start in the second half as they threatened early with Wally Fofana forcing a good save from Danlad Ibrahim.
Coach Karim Zito later brought on Frank Boateng, Joselpho Barnes and Mathew Cudjoe in place of Emmanuel Essiam, Percious Boah and Mohamed Sulemana.
Gambia had most of the ball, bit sadly couldn’t find means to break down the Ghanaian defense.
Percious Boah was adjudged the Total player of the match.
