Ghana’s Black Satellites over the weekend fought from a goal down to beat Burkina Faso 2-1 in the 2020 WAFU Zone B competition at the Charles de Gaulle Stadium in Porto-Novo, Benin.

As expected, the Young Stallions who boast of the best-attacking machinery in the competition having already scored eight goals in four matches including a 4-1 win over Cote d’Ivoire in the semi-finals begun the game the stronger side.

It didn’t take long for their effort to be rewarded as Kouame Jean Botue broke the deadlock in the 16th minute when he profited from an error by Ghana’s defense to fire the ball past goalkeeper Ibrahim Danlad. Ghana however drew parity just five minutes before the interval when skipper, Daniel Afriyie Barnie met Precious Boah’s free-kick to score for the Black Satellites.

Gahan were lucky to end the first half as Hamad Ouattar watched in agony as the crossbar saved his effort. After recess, the Black Satellites showed glimpses of a side determined to win and continued to press for more goals until their effort was rewarded in the 79th minute when Ghana won a free kick 35 yards from the penalty box.

Boah who took the free-kick fired the ball into the net to put the Black Satellites into the lead and to take his personal tally in the tournament to two after scoring against Nigeria in the opening game.
