Published on: 19 December 2020

Ghana coach CK Akonnor has hailed the Black Satellites for winning the 2020 WAFU Zon B Championship.

The Black Satellites came from behind to beat Burkina Faso 2-1 at the Charles de Gaulle stadium in Porto-Novo, Benin.

The Young Stallions broke the deadlock in the 16th minute with Kouame Jean Fiacre Botue pounced on an error in the Ghana defence and hit the ball past Ibrahim Danlad.

With just about 5 minutes to end the first half, the Black Satellites got the equalizer through Daniel Afriyie Barnie who latched onto a Percious Boah free-kick in the 40th minute.

Danger man Percious Boah once again scored from a free kick in the 79th minute from 35 yards to increase the lead for the Black Satellites.

After the game, Akonnor lauded the Satellites for winning the trophy.

"Congratulations to my colleague Karim Zito and the entire technical team, the playing body and management for winning the WAFU U-20 Championship.

"Great work #BringBackTheLove." Akonnor wrote on Twitter.

Ghana and Burkina Faso have already booked a place in next year's Africa U-20 Cup of Nations to be staged in Mauritania after making it to the finals in this zone.
