The Ghana U20 national team has qualified for the final of the men’s football tournament at the ongoing 13th African Games.

Nicknamed the Black Satellites, the Ghana U20 Men’s national team sealed the qualification on Tuesday night after a hard-fought 1-0 victory against the Senegal U20 men’s national team.

The two youth national teams locked horns today in a semifinal showdown staged at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Despite the dominance of the Black Satellites in the first half, the hosts could not find the back of the net and had to go into the break on level pegging.

After the halftime break, Ghana continue to dominate the contest but Senegal also had their moments although they struggled to penetrate the defense of the hosts.

Late in the 83rd minute, substitute Michael Ephson decided the game when he equalized from close range to give the Black Satellites a deserved lead.

With Ghana doing enough to hold on to the lead, the Black Satellites managed to secure the narrow win to advance to the final of the men’s football tournament at the African Games.
