A revitalized Ghana Black Stars today beat a determined Burkina Faso team that was reduced to 10 men by one goal to nil to advance to the quarter-finals of the Orange African Nations Cup tournament in Angola.
The goal was scored in the 30th minute by Andre Dede Ayew who connected a header from Agyeman-Badu’s cross into the 18-yard box.
The team playing without most of their key players like Michael Essien who got injured, improved their performance as compared to their opening game against Cote d’Ivoire last week in which the Stars were beaten by three goals to one. In that game too the Ivorians were reduced to 10 men.
Ghana will meet hosts Angola on Sunday.
