U-20 AFCON: Satellites ease past Ethiopia, book Senegal date for final qualifier

The Black Satellites of Ghana walloped the Red Foxes of Ethiopia 4-0 to ensure advancing to the final round of the 2017 Africa U-20 Cup of Nations Monday afternoon. 

The match was supposed to come off on Sunday but was rescheduled for Monday noon due to torrential rains in Cape Coast.

Ghana lost the first leg 1-2 three weeks ago and needed to overturn the deficit in the second leg.

Two quick goals in the first half from Yaw Yeboah and Dauda Mohammed in the 6th and 8th minute respectively gave the Satellites a 2-goal cushioning at half time.

Inter Allies winger, Evans Mensah made 3-0 in the 57th minute with Yaw Yeboah completing the business with his brace in the 75th minute.

They have now qualified on a 5-2 goal aggregate.

Ghana will face Senegal, who brushed Tunisia aside, in the final round for a ticket to the U-20 AFCON.

Zambia will host the 20th edition of the tournament in February 2017.
