U-20 AFCON qualifier: Ghana take first leg advantage against Benin

WAFA SC striker Richard Danso scored twice as Ghana came from behind to defeat Benin 3-1 in the 2019 U-20 Africa Cup of Nations final qualifying round on Saturday.

Allagbani Saliou took advantage of his side’s counter-attack to fire past the Black Satellites goalkeeper to give the visitors a shock lead after 28 minutes.

A disjointed display ensured that the match went into the break with the visitors leading but what looks like good half-time talks by coach Cobbinah gave Ghana the edge.

Danso, who had been out of sort after wasting a lot of chances, drew the home side level on the hour mark before Konda’s strike 12 minutes later put Ghana in the lead.

The Black Satellites sealed victory with six minutes remaining as Danso hit his second of the afternoon to give Ghana a good chance ahead of the return leg.

Ghana will travel to Cotonou next week for the second-leg to decide which side will advance to the next round of the qualifiers.
