Ghana completes U-17 Nations Cup without a goal


Ghana settled for a goalless draw against Guinea and remained the only side competing in the ongoing Africa U-17 Nations Cup that completed the group phase without conceding a goal.

The Black Starlets dominated play, yet they were denied from finding the back of the net for the very first time in the competition.

Both sides created some decent opportunities in the early stage of the game, but they failed to register a goal.

The best chance of the game came the way of Ghana’s Edmund Mensah who needed to nod home a ball floated into the 18-yard box, however he headed it over the post to give the Guineans a sigh of relief in the late minute

Free scoring Ghana had defeated Cameroon 4-0 in their opening game before they thrashed host nation Gabon 5-0 and in their final group game they drew goalless against Guinea, hence they finished the group stage as the only side that didn’t concede any goal.

Guinea after picking the one point in the game joined Ghana who had already secured qualification to the 2017 FiFA World Cup in India to the last four of the competition.
