The Black Galaxies were held to a goalless draw in their friendly match against Algeria at the Nelson Mandela Stadium on Saturday.
Coach Annor Walker’s side put up an impressive all-round performance in the match which was played ahead of the commencement of the 2022 Total Energies African Nations Championship.
The home side started the game strongly forcing Ibrahim Danlad to make some early saves.
Skipper Gladson Awako was taken off due to a knock and was replaced by Sylvester Simba.
The Galaxies also had their moments in the first half but the resolute Algerian defence kept Barnieh and Razak at bay.
Ghana came into the second half on a high momentum and exciting displays but still failed to find the back of the net.
Suraj and Augustine Agyapong were introduced into the game as replacements for Razak Yusif and Augustine Randolf respectively.
The home side nearly broke the deadlock on the 75th minute mark but Danlad pulled a spectacular save to prevent Ghana from conceding.
At the end of a gruelling session, the match ended goalless after a good display from the two sides.
The Galaxies returned to training grounds yesterday as they focus on their next friendly game against Mozambique tomorrow, after which the team will leave Algiers to Constantine, where they will play their group games.
Led by Gladson Awako, the Galaxies have recorded wins against Egypt’s Under-20 side, Accra Hearts of Oak and Legon Cities, among others. Ghana is in Group C paired alongside Morocco, Sudan and Madagascar.
