Ghana Black Stars Gear Up For AFCON Qualifiers

The Black Stars of Ghana cruised past Legon Cities FC 3-1 in a friendly encounter played at the Accra Sports Stadium on Wednesday.

The match was a preparatory match for the Black Stars ahead of their Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) doubleheader qualifiers against South Africa and Sao Tome and Principe next week.

Goals from Kwame Poku, Mubarak Wakaso and Moro Salifu ensured the Stars recorded an emphatic victory against a resurgent Legon Cities side.

Substitute Asamoah Gyan scored the consolation goal for Legon Cities.

The Black Stars started the game on the front foot dictating play in the midfield area with the likes Wakaso Mubarak, Gladson Awako, and Moro Salifu all in action.

Medeama’s Rashid Nortey should have Black Stars in the lead in the opening minutes but his long-range effort was cleared off the lines after a poor clearance by Legon Cities goalkeeper Winfred Honu.

The game was very cagey and seemed like a competitive encounter with both sides pushing for the opener.
