Wafu-B U-17 Cup: Ghana, Nigeria trade penalty goals in 1-1 draw

Ghana and Nigeria traded penalty goals to draw 1-1 in Group B of the ongoing 2020 Wafu-B Under-17 Cup of Nations in Togo Saturday afternoon.

Both goals were scored from the penalty spot with the Golden Eaglets putting their noses in front as late as the 77th minute through Joseph Arumala.

Nigeria’s lead was shortlived as Starlets equalized just some 7 minutes  later.

Samuel Boakye won a penalty which skipper Abdul Fatawu Issahaku neatly converted in the 84th minute.

Both sides traded opportunities in either half but failed to bury the chances that came their way to draw the game 1-1 on Saturday.

Ghana need to avoid defeat against Cote d’Ivoire to make it to the next round of the competition. The Ivorians lead Group B with three points after their 1-0 win over Nigeria in their opening game.

Ghana XI:

Abdul Manaf Ibrahim – Abdul Fatawu Issahaku (c), Augustus Asuo, Emmanuel Osei-Asibey, Kojo Peprah Oppong, Felix Agyemang Osei, Alhassan Alhassan, Abubakar Gaddo, Jonas Naafo, Benjamin Nyarko, Samuel Boakye
