The senior national team brought massive smiles to the faces of Ghanaians as they commenced the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers with a comfortable 2-0 win over South Africa at the Cape Coast Stadium on Thursday evening.


The Black Stars had a brilliant start to the game where they enjoyed the lion share of possession.


Thomas Partey broke the deadlock in the 36th minute with a brilliant low effort from long range that caught Bafana Bafana keeper Ronwen Williams flat footed. The Black Stars were rewarded for a bright start as they had most of the scoring chances.

THOMAS PARTEY BROKE THE DEADLOCK IN THE 36TH MINUTE WITH A BRILLIANT LOW EFFORT FROM LONG RANGE THAT CAUGHT BAFANA BAFANA KEEPER RONWEN WILLIAMS FLAT FOOTED. THE BLACK STARS WERE REWARDED FOR A BRIGHT START AS THEY HAD MOST OF THE SCORING CHANCES.

In the 10th minute, a Partey low freekick was flicked goal-ward by Jordan Ayew but a hawk-eyed Williams picked it up. Dean Furman had a chance for South Africa on the quarter hour mark after Percy Tau’s freekick ping-ponged on bodies inside the box, but the curling shot went over.


In the second half, Ghana kept pushing for a second with Boateng coming close with a header that was well saved by Williams.


They finally got the nerve-calming second 11 minutes from time when substitute Mohammed won the ball close to the halfway line, dribbled into the box and struck an unstoppable right footed shot.


Meanwhile in Bamako, Guinea twice came from behind to force a 2-2 draw with Mali in a thrilling tie. Adama Traore broke the deadlock for the Malians in the 56th minute, but Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita drew Guinea level just 10 minutes later.


The home side would take just five minutes to get themselves back into the lead through Sekou Koita’s goal, but the never say die Guineans struck back level in the 75th minute through Sekou Conde.


Guinea will face Group A leaders Namibia in Conakry on Sunday while Mali will travel away to take on Chad.


Next up, the Black Stars will face São Tomé and Príncipe on Tuesday.
