The Black Satellites have bowed out of the group stages of the 2023 WAFU Zone B Boys U-20 Cup of Nations after drawing 1-1 with host nation Côte d’Ivoire in the final group A game at the Champroux Stadium.

Ghana headed into the game needing nothing short of a win to progress to the semifinal of the competition. The Black Satellites had a poor start to the competition, throwing an early lead to draw 1-1 against Niger in the first game and losing 2-0 to Burkina Faso in the second game.

In the final Group A game, Ghana failed to get the desired result, drawing 1-1 with Côte d’Ivoire and consequently missing out on a place in the semifinal.

In the other Group A game, Burkina Faso defeated Niger 2-0 to finish top of the group with 9 points. Côte d’Ivoire finished second with 4 points, Ghana third with 2 points and Niger bottom with a point.

Burkina Faso and Côte d’Ivoire will know their opponents for the semifinal on Friday, June 14 when Benin take on Togo in the only Group B game.
