Ghana crashed out at Amputee World Cup

Ghana crashed out of the 2012 Amputee Football World Cup after a 1-2 defeat to Argentina on Thursday in their last group match in Kaliningrad, Russia.

The Black Challenge needed just a draw to go through but went down by two goals early before managing a consolation later, which was little enough to boost their quest for a historic semi final berth.

The Argentines, who beat the Ghanaians at the last World Cup 5-0, were more tactical in their play, keeping one player permanently at the top with a more skilful support from their danger man, Augusto Alonso.

After their first half goal, the Argentines intensified their game for their second goal in the other half of the game, putting the Black Challenge in a very difficult situation as the minutes tickled away.

The South Americans doubled the lead minutes later before Collins Gyamfi, reduced the tally with his fourth goal of the tournament.

Ghana will now play England in the play-off for fifth place on Saturday.

The Black Challenge finished sixth at the last championship held in Argentina in 2010.

Meanwhile, Francis Adjetey Sowah, President of the Amputee Football Federation of Africa (AFFA) and the Ghana Amputee Football Federation (GAFF) will be contesting for the Second Vice President of the World Amputee Football Federation (WAFF) during the congress on Friday.
