A brilliant display by Ghana’s Under 23 side today has spiced up qualification hopes to the African Under 23 cup of nations after beating Gabon by four unanswered goals at the Accra stadium.
Kwame Owusu’s 16th minute opener set the tone for an afternoon to remember as the Black Meteors dominated the key areas of play with the Gabonese unsettled.
Bernard Tekpetey’s superb strike justified his push for a spot on the senior national team, The Black Stars. The FC Paderborn striker has maintained that, he is Black Stars material even though Black Meteors handlers prefer him on the Under 23 team.
The balance of play stayed in Ghana’s favor in the entire duration of the second half with the Gabonese struggling to catch up with the pacey Ghanaian attacks and mobility upfront. It was just a matter of time before the Black Meteors added a third in the 78th minute.
With the game now beyond their reach and Ghana flying high in attack , the fourth goal conceded by the Gabonese summed up a day to forget as Osman Bukari completed a much deserved brace , giving Ghana a 4 goal cushion ahead of the return leg in Libreville.
