AFCON 2017- Ghana stuns Uganda in Group D opener

Group D matches opened today at the ongoing AFCON tournament in Gabon as the Black Stars of Ghana took on Cranes of Uganda.

The two teams met earlier in the qualifying round as they find themselves in the same group for the World Cup Playoffs.

The match ended in a draw at the Tamale Stadium in Ghana.

Egypt and Mali are the other two teams that make up the group and will face off at 7pm on Tuesday.

Ghana is favorite to win the group but could face an upset if they become complacent.

Ghana hasn't won the AFCON in over 35 years and are poised to end the drought.
