Samuel-Tetteh Black
The Black Stars were held to a 1-1 drawn game by Rwanda at the Accra Sports Stadium in the final Group H AFCON qualifier on Saturday.

The Black Stars who have already qualified for the next year’s championship with 14 points after six games used the game to test some players, as the likes of Samuel Tetteh and Alfred Duncan were handed their debut start.

Ghana dominated Rwanda and created a lot of chances in first 15 minutes but the likes of David Accam and Frank Acheampong failed to bury those chances.

Avram Grant’s side in the 24th minute broke the deadlock through a Samuel Tetteh’s 20 yard brilliant strike, the home side could have doubled their lead before the break but they fluffed those opportunities.

In the second half, the Amavubi’s came into the game strongly as they marched Ghana boot for boot – creating some decent chances but finding the back of the net was their problem.

Jimmy Musila’s side never got despaired and with 8 minutes to end the game, they grabbed the needed equalizer courtesy a fantastic free-kick from Hakizinnya Muhadjiri.

Despite late pressure from Ghana, Rwanda held on to earn a well deserved draw.

The next year’s AFCON championship will be staged in Gabon.
