2017 AFCON: Black Stars fails to qualify for finals, lose 0-2 to Cameroon

The Black Stars of Ghana failed to qualify for the finals of the ongoing African Cup of Nation in Gabon as they were beaten 2:0 by the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon.

Their Cameroonian counterpart scored their first goal in the 77 minute of the game against the run of play as the Black Stars put up a spirited performance.

The Black Stars players in an attempt to equalize from a corner kick, threw every man forward in the goal area of the Cameroon and left only Harrison Aful in defence, but they were caught on the break with the Indomitable Lions scoring their second goal in injury time.

That shattered the dreams of the Black Stars as they pursued the trophy, having won it the last time in 1982.
