Gideon Mensah disappointed us in our last 2 games against Angola and you want to compare him to Baba Rahman who has been disappointing us everyday? Apart from Ati Zigi our goal keeper, all players were average against Angola. Ah well obiaa ne nadwenkyer3.

Black Stars held in Angola

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Osman Bukari needed only sixty seconds to make an impact after scoring immediately following his introduction in the game against Angola.

The Black Stars conceded early in the second half after Reading striker Lucas Joao scored from the penalty spot.

The hosts started the game brightly with midfielder Fredy testing Ghana goalkeeper Lawrence Ati Zigi from long range after just eight minutes.
