U20 AFCON: Black Satellites thrash Tanzania in first game

Ghana’s U20 national team, the Black Satellites, picked a statement win against Tanzania in the ongoing U20 African Cup of Nations in Mauritania on Tuesday evening at the Stade Municipal Nouadhibou.

Karim Zito’s men won 4-0 against the Taifa Stars, courtesy of a brace from Percious Boah and one each from Abdul Fatawu Issahaku and Joselpho Barnes.

Dreams FC forward, Percious Boah, opened the scoring early in the 4th minute through a brilliantly curled free-kick into the back post of Tanzania to give the Black Satellites a 1-0 lead.

16-year-old Abdul Fatawu Issahaku scored a worldie goal from the halfway line just after the half hour mark to double Ghana’s lead.

The Tanazanians dominated proceedings in the first-half but could not make the chances they got count, finishing the first-half two goals down.

Boah scored his second of the game and Ghana’s third in the 71st minute after sitting down a defender of the opposition and curled it in superbly once again.

Schalke O4 youngster, Joselpho Barnes, wrapped up proceedings with a close-range finish in the 89th minute to end the game 4-0 in favour of the Black Satellites.

Ghana leads Group C with three points after the thumping win over Tanzania, while Morocco will lock horns later against Gambia in the other group game.
