Ghana has officially booked their ticket to the 2023 AFCON in Ivory Coast after coming from a goal down to beat Central African Republic in 10 consecutive times in a row.
Ghana extended their unbeaten run in Baba Yara after beating C.A.R by 2-1 with goals from Right to Dream graduates, Mohammed Kudus and Ernest Nuamah after Louis Mafouta’s opener.
CAR shocked the four-time African Champions in the early stages after opening the scoring in the 25th minute but before that Ati Zigi was forced to make a crucial save in the 17th minute after a lovely strike from Goduine Koyalipou.
Mohammed Kudus equalized for Ghana just before the break from a free kick to make it 1-1 at halftime. Back from recess, the defense of both sides was resolute and compact to deny the opponent from scoring in the early stages of the second half.
Second-half substitutes Antonie Semenyo and Ernest Nuamah combined to complete the comeback for Ghana in the 88th minute. Antonie Semenyo forced the defense to win the ball from the back to set up Ernest Nuamah who tapped in to secure the win for Ghana.
Elsewhere in Angola, Madagascar held Angola to a goalless draw but the point for Angola was good to secure them a place in Ivory Coast in January.
Following the results, Ghana topped group E with 12 points, and Angola finished second with 9 points. Seven and three points were the points for Central Africa Republic and Madagascar who finished 3rd and 4th respectively.
