U-20 AFCON: Ghana 0-2 Senegal: Satellites Suffer Defeat In Second Group Game

Ghana’s Under 20 national team, the Black Satellites has suffered a 2-0 defeat in the hands of their Senegalese counterparts in the second group B game in the ongoing youth tournament in Niger.

The Tactical Senegalese side created the first meaningful chance of the free-flowing encounter when the exciting Ndaw beat his marker for pace and delivers a cross for Youssouph Mamadou Badji who headed past goalkeeper Nurudeen in the 11th-minute mark.

The Young Teranga Lions dominated possession and increased their tally to two on the 45th-minute mark after he latched onto a through ball and dinked the onrushing Ghana defender Abdul Nurudeen Manaf to give Senegal their second before half time.

Ghana started the second half of the game well but failed to capitalize on their chances - the game ended in favour of the Senegalese.

The Young Teranga are yet to lose a game and sit on top of Group B with six points.

Ghana next take on Mali in the final group game to decide who joins Senegal to the semi-final and book a World Cup slot on Sunday, February 10 at the Maradi stadium.
