Black Starlets record second win over Niger in friendly

Patmus Arhin scored twice to hand Ghana a 2-0 win over Niger in an international friendly on Thursday afternoon.

The Black Starlets got a repeat over their counterparts in the friendly with yet another victory.

Coach Paa Kwesi Fabin’s side had recorded a similar score line against the 2015 Africa U17 Championship host last Monday.

Ghana however confirmed their superiority over their counterparts by scoring a goal in each half.

This exercise is the final wrap-up for the team in Ghana as they prepare to embark on a pre-tournament camp in Kenya next week ahead of the Africa U17 Championship in Gabon next month.

The two-time African Champions are hoping to get their hand on the title after missing out in the last edition of the competition.

The team have been drawn in Group A together with host Nation Gabon, Mali and Cameroon.
