Mali deny Ghana victory in international friendly

9 years ago

The Black Stars played out a 1-1 draw in their international friendly against Mali on Tuesday evening.

The match was Ghana's second friendly in France after losing 2-1 to Senegal over the weekend.

Ashgold Goalkeeper Fatau Dauda was in post for the Black Stars with Jeffrey Schlupp, Daniel Amartey, Rabiu Mohammed and Agyemang Badu all starting the match.

After a goalless first half, Agyemang Badu shot Ghana into the lead in the second half from Yiadom Boakye's pass.

The Malians were however awarded a penalty in the 71st minute and Bakary Sako converted to give the Eagles their equaliser as the game ended in a draw.

Interestingly injured Ghana midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah was in the stands at the Stade Sébastien Charléty to support the team.

The versatile Juventus midfielder had to undergo knee surgery about three months ago and could return to the national team for the upcoming 2017 AFCON qualifiers.
