The Black Stars led by John Mensah, today demolished the Congolese team by 3 goals to 1 at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi. The team maintained their place at the top of Group I of the African Cup of Nations qualifiers.

The Ghanaian side was not able to settle for the match in the first half of the game.

After a useless tackle from Congo’s Pablo Makita -who brought down Black Stars’ Kwadwo Asamoah- , the referee issued him a red card which sent him off the pitch.

After the redcard Black Stars gained a lot of possession in the midfield.

Isaac Vorsah’s powerful header in the 62nd minute put the Black Stars in the lead. Before the Congolese could regroup, Prince Tagoe, known to his fans as Prince of Goals put the ball at the back of the Congolese net.

A rather careless manoeuvre from Ghanaian goalkeeper Richard Kingson ended with the ball behind the Ghanaian net. The Stadium became quite not because the fans were scared but because they did not expect experience goalkeeper Kingson to commit such an error.

After taking on two defenders, Black Stars’ Agyemang Badu landed a powerful strike in the net of the Congolese to seal the deal at 3 goals to 1. The victory sent beams of smiles to the face of Black Stars Coach Goran Stevanovic who had earlier promised Ghanaians that he was going to win the African Cup of Nations with the Black Stars.
