The Black Stars of Ghana defeated Legon Cities FC 3-1 in a friendly encounter as the team stepped up preparations for the resumption of the qualifying matches to next year’s Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament.
Ghana will later this month take on South Africa on the road before returning home to host Sao Tome & Principe in the two final matches in Group C of the qualifiers to the continental showpiece.
Unsure whether foreign players will be available for the two games, Black Stars head coach CK Akonnor has been preparing with some local players in addition to midfielder Mubarak Wakaso and striker Emmanuel Boateng.
Today, the team locked horns with Premier League side Legon Cities FC to give the coach the chance to assess the progress of his team and the form of players.
In a game that failed to produce a goal in the first half, both teams combined for four in the second half.
Striker Kwame Opoku opened the scoring for the Black Stars before midfielders Mubarak Wakaso and Moro Salifu also found the back of the net to put the national team in control.
Later in the game, substitute Asamoah Gyan netted a consolation goal for Legon Cities FC as the friendly eventually ended 3-1 in favour of the Stars.
Ghana’s clash against South Africa is scheduled to be played on March 25, 2021.
