After beating the latter 2-4 on penalties at Stade Olympique in Mauritania, Ghana progressed to the final four at Cameroon’s expense.
The Black Satellite, who will play on Friday, will face either the Central African Republic or Gambia.
Cameroon had a great start to the game, making it clear that they intended to win the game. As the satellites were trying to keep the game under control and stabilize.
With Barnie miscalculating his half-chance to put the side ahead, Ghana could hardly test the opposing goalkeeper.
The second half was flat with the remaining cautions of both teams and allowing capitalization with little to no mistake. That’s why the game went into extra time.
Cameroon got the breakthrough, Kevin-Prince Milla, in the 103rd minute perfectly connected Etienne Eto’o’s corner.Ghana equalized a minute later after captain Daniel Afriyie noded down a long ball into the path of unmarked Frank Boateng who slotted home beautifully with the ball taking a bounce over the goalkeeper.
The game eventually moved to penalties. Boah, Barnie, Anokye and Assinki converted their penalties whilst Cameroon missed two.
