2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers: Ghana succumbs to South Africa in Johannesburg


Ghana’s senior national team, the Black Stars succumbed to their South African counterparts in the second fixture of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers thanks to a late goal by Bafana Bafana.

Bongokuhle Hlongwane scored with seven minutes remaining at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, as the Bafana Bafana beat the Black Stars 1-0 to move top of Group G with four points, having picked a point in the 0-0 draw against Zimbabwe on matchday one.

There were not many chances in the game but Hlongwane did the needful when he directed the ball into the net from inside the six-yard box after a cross from the right to give coach Hugo Broos his first victory.

The Black Stars did not have a good day as they failed to register a shot on target against the South Africans and this incurred the wrath of many Ghanaian soccer fans who called for the head of the coach on various social media platforms.

But in his defense, coach of the Black Stars CK Akonnor was quoted as saying: “In the second half, we somehow lost the midfield in terms of how we want to play because we believed that we could win the game. We did one or two substitutions, which really went the other way round and we kept dropping and dropping.”
