Black Stars of Ghana inch closer to breaking 41-year Afcon trophy drought


The Black Stars of Ghana are one step closer to ending their 41-year Afcon trophy drought after a hard-fought win against Angola on Thursday. The West African country defeated their group opponent 1-0 in the matchday three games of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations [AFCON] qualifiers at the Baba Yara Stadium.

Despite a tough challenge from the Palancas Negras, Antoine Semenyo’s late strike secured a crucial victory for Ghana. With this result, the Black Stars have now turned their attention to the reverse fixture next week, as they seek to consolidate their position at the top of the group.

On Friday evening, head coach Chris Hughton and his technical team took the Stars through a recovery session at the Baba Yara Stadium. The team worked hard to prepare themselves for the tough trip to Luanda for the reverse leg on Monday, March 27.

Ghana will face Angola at the Estádio 11 de Novembro, and they will be looking to maintain their unbeaten run in the qualifiers. A win in the reverse fixture will put them in a strong position to qualify for the tournament, which will be held in Ivory Coast next year.

The Black Stars have been impressive in the qualifiers so far, having won two of their three matches and drawn one. They currently sit on top of Group C with seven points, followed by Sudan with four points, while South Africa and Angola are tied with three points each.

The Ghanaian team has shown great determination and resilience in their quest for success, and they are determined to end the country’s long wait for the Afcon trophy. With their eyes firmly fixed on the prize, the Black Stars will be hoping to produce another stellar performance in Luanda and take a step closer to achieving their goal.
