In the absence of competitive football on the local scene, the Accra Sports stadium was as usual draped with red, gold and green. Patrons of Ghana football trooped to the ”Nation’s Wembley” to cheer on the Black Meteors as they played the first leg of the last round of the U23  AFCON qualifier.

The Meteors were off to a great start in the first half. Kwabena Owusu’s goal in the 15th brought a thunderous roaring sound which competed with the sounds of the sea waves. From this high in the early minutes of the game, the next 30 minutes did not live up to the expectation of the spectators.

Coach Tanko substituted Benjamin Tetteh for Bernard Tepketey.  This yielded results as Bernard Tekpetey increased the lead for the Meteors in the 48th minute. Osman Bukari launched on a cross from Yaw Yeboah in the increasing the woes for the Gabonese in the 73rd minute. It was Bukari Osman’s turn again to make it 4-0 after receiving a through pass in the 18 yard box.

In the end it was Ghana 4-0 Gabon.

In true fashion of celebration, member of the Normalisation Committee Samuel Osei Kuffour and executives of PFAG presented Thomas Partey with his Fifpro Africa Best 11 award.
