Black Satellites thump Gabon to reach AYC finals

7 years ago

Ghana have qualified for the 2015 Africa Youth Championship after recording a 4-1 away win over Gabon on Saturday.

The Black Satellites, silver medalist at the previous Championship will join hosts, Senegal and six other African sides at the finals.

Ten-man Ghana needed a first half brace from Asiedu Attobrah and Yaw Yeboah before Samuel Afful and Prosper Kassim rounded up a four-star performance in Libreville, rendering the consolation by the home team irrelevant.

Both sides drew goalless in the first leg in Accra a fortnight ago but the Black Satellites showed much desire for victory though Kofi Yeboah was sent off in the second half.

Ghana, three-time African champions will be aiming for a fourth when the competition begins in Senegal next year.

All qualified teams will arrive in Senegal for the Championship slated from 8-22 March 2015.
