Coach Ibrahim Tanko’s side defeated second division team Shooting stars 3-1 on Wednesday morning at the Accra Sports stadium.
Goals from KRC Genk star Joseph Paintsil, Osman Bukari and Wafa SC striker Daniel Lomotey were enough to dispatch the second tier side after 90 minutes. Paintsil scored and registered an assist as well on the day.
Randy Boakye’s goal could only serve as a consolation for Shooting stars.
Ahead of Saturday’s U23 AFCON qualifier, the Black Meteors needed an equally competitive tie to prepare for this clash and this game served its purpose with Coach Ibrahim Tanko giving most of the players a fair crack at justifying themselves for the weekend’s tie.
The team now has a full house with the arrival of former Manchester City player Yaw Yeboah who could be leading the team out of the tunnel on Saturday.
