Ghana missed out on winning a third straight WAFU Cup of Nations title after a 3-1 penalty shootout to 2019 hosts Senegal last night.

The two teams were tied 1-1 after extra-time, with each side scoring after 90 minutes of cagey football.

Senegal broke the deadlock after 108 minutes through Youssouph Badji but after just three minutes the Black Stars local team was levelled.

Hearts of Oak striker Joseph Esso smashed home from a half volley inside the box to send the tense finale to the penalty shootout.

During the spot-kicks, Maxwell Konadu’s boys missed their first two kicks through Augustine Okrah and Fatawu Mohammed.

McCarthy Appiah scored the third spot-kick to leave it at 2-1 but Barr restored Senegal’s two-goal lead before Justice Blay squandered the fourth kick.
