4 years ago

Ghana came from a goal down to beat Zambia 2:1 in the second group B game of the CAF Under 20 Championship in Senegal.

The victory has secured the Black Satellites a double ticket to the semi finals of the tournament as well as a slot in the FiFA Under 20 World Cup to be staged in New Zealand later this year.

Dave Saka gave Zambia an early lead in the second minute but Ghana hit back with a spectacular strike by Asiedu Attobrah before the break.

With the game heading for a stalemate, substitute Samuel Afful shot Ghana into the lead in the 85th minute.

Ghana will next play Mali on Sunday. The Malians earlier defeated South Africa 2:1 to also book a semi final place as well as a world cup ticket.
