Ghana’s Black Satellites are through to the final qualifying round of 2019 U-20 Africa Cup of Nations (ACN) after beating Algeria 2-0 yesterday at the Cape Coast stadium in their second leg clash.


The three-time champions advance on aggregate following a 0-0 away draw in Algiers last week.


Mohammed Kudus and Ibrahim Sadiq – both part of Ghana’s U-17 World Cup team in India 2017 – grabbed the goals for Black Satellites.


Midfielder Mohammed Kudus opened the scoring in the 36th with a beautifully struck shot from outside the box.

Two minutes after recess, winger Ibrahim Sadiq doubled the lead with a brilliant solo run before calmly slotting home.


Ghana continued to create a number of chances after going up but failed to translate them into goals as the Algerians struggled to record an away goal.


The Black Satellites will face Benin for a place at the final tournament scheduled for February 2-7 in Niger.


The first leg of the Ghana-Benin clash has been fixed for the weekend of July 13, 14 or 15 while the second leg will be played between July 20, 21, and 22.
