Lions out of AAG

Ghana celebrated a memorable day at the All Africa Games in Maputo as both their men’s and women’s teams reached their respective finals.

In the men’s event, Ghana beat defending Cameroon 1-0 thanks to Prince Baffoe’s 52nd-minute goal.

Ghana will meet South Africa in Saturday’s final, shortly after their women take on Cameroon.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Black Princesses beat Algeria 3-0 in their semi-final.


  • MEN: Ghana vs South Africa
  • WOMEN: Ghana vs Cameroon

Elizabeth Cudjoe grabbed a brace while captain Mercy Myles also netted.

“The game was toughter than the scoreline suggests,” Myles told BBC Sport. “It wasn’t easy, but we fought very hard.”

Ghana are enjoying a fine tournament, having gone unbeaten in four matches ahead of Saturday’s final at the Zimpeto National Stadium.

On Friday, Algeria will play off against the other losing semi-finalists, South Africa, for third place in the competition.

In the men’s event, Cameroon will play Senegal, who were beaten on penalties by South Africa on Tuesday, for third place.

The defending champions mounted late pressure against Ghana on Wednesday in the final fifteen minutes but could not find a way through.
