Ghana Under-17s put up a strong show to defeat Namibia’s Under-23 team 2-1 in a friendly game on Wednesday afternoon in Accra.
The Black Starlets preparing for their final round of qualifying for the African U-17 Championship exhibited courage to overcome the much-stronger Namibians.
Asokwa Deportivo and Ghana striker Abass Issa was the star of the day as he scored both goals for Paa Kwesi Fabin’s team.
The striker headed Ghana in front in the first half but the visitors managed to draw level before the break.
Back from recess, the Black Starlets appeared the stronger side as they dominated the exchanges before Abass put them back in the lead to seal victory.
The Black Starlets will now face Cameroon in the third round stage of the African qualifiers as they push for a place in the finals of the 2015 U-17 Championship to be staged by Niger.
