Black Meteors fail to qualify for 2016 Olympic games after away loss to Congo

4 years ago

The National U-23 side, Black Meteors have failed to qualify to the final stage of the 2016 Olympic qualifiers after losing 5-4 on penalties to Congo in Brazzaville.

The Congolese scored a lone goal courtesy Sylvere Ganvoula to cancel out Enoch Ebo Andoh's goal for Ghana in the first leg played at the Accra Stadium last weekend.

And after Ghana's inability to find an equalizer that would have seen them through to the next stage, the game went into penalty shootouts.

The Black Meteors however ended their Olympic dream after missing one penalty kick as their opponents converted all five kicks.

Congo therefore qualifies to the final stage of the Rio 2016 qualifiers and will face Nigeria's Dream Team.
