Ghana missed on qualification to the 2020 African Nations Championship on Sunday after  drawing 0-0 with Burkina Faso in the final round qualifier.

The result meant the Black Stars B got eliminated 1-0 on aggregate after suffering defeat at home in the first leg tie at the Baba Yara Stadium.

The Local Black Stars beat the Stallions 4-1 on penalties two weeks ago en route to reaching the final of the 2019 WAFU Cup of Nations in Senegal.

But Maxwell Konadu and his charges could not replicate that feat and got knocked out of the competition.

Since losing the 2014 finals in South Africa, Ghana have now failed to qualify for the last two tournaments played in Rwanda (2016) and Morocco (2018).

Again, Sunday’s disappointment means the Black Stars B have to wait for another two years to earn a possible return to the championship, having failed to qualify since 2014.

Chan is exclusively reserved for players plying their trade in their local leagues.

The 2020 championship will be played in Cameroon.
