Published on: 26 March 2019

10-man Ghana have qualified to the next stage of the U-23 Africa Cup of Nations after holding Gabon to a goalless in the return leg at the Nations at Stade Augustin Monédan de Sibang in Libreville on Tuesday.

Coach Ibrahim Tanko made one change to his starting lineup that thrashed the Gabonese 4-0 in the first leg at the Accra Sports Stadium on Saturday.

Paderbon SC forward Bernard Tekpetey replaced Benjamin Tetteh.

Ghana were slightly ahead of the hosts in terms of dominance yet couldn't find the back of the net.

The Young Panthers came into the second half very strongly after Simon Zibo had been sent off in the 55th minute but failed to make the advantage count in goals.

Black Meteors progressed to the last round of the qualifiers and will face Algeria in a two-legged game.
