Ghana are a win away from securing a place at the 2023 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) to be played in Ivory Coast.
The Black Stars on Monday drew 1-1 against Angola in the fourth round of games of the qualifiers. Angola went ahead in the 51st minute through a penalty converted by Lucas João, before Osman Bukari came from the bench to score and in the process earn Ghana a point.
The point sees the Black Stars remain top of group E with 8 points. Central African Republic sit in 2nd place with 7 points, Angola in 3rd place with 5 points and Madagascar remain bottom with a point.
The situation means the Black Stars need 3 points in their remaining two games of the qualifiers against Central Africa Republic at home and Madagascar away to secure a place at next year’s AFCON. A further point will secure Ghana top spot in the group.
The 2023 AFCON which will be the 34th edition of the continental showpiece event will be played in Ivory Coast in January and February 2024. The competition was initially scheduled to played in June and July 2023 but was postponed due weather conditions in the host nation.
Already, host country Ivory Coast, Morocco and Algeria have secured their places at the competition.
