Black Starlets draw 1-1 with Congo

Ghana came from a goal down to draw 1-1 with Congo Brazzaville in their second Group B match at the 2013 Africa Junior championship.

Yaw Yeboah fetched the equalizer in the 33rd minute after Kader Bidimbou had scored early on for the Congolese in the 3rd minute.

The two-time African champions must now win their final match against Ivory Coast on Saturday to stand a chance of progressing.

Ghana now have just a point after losing the first match on a 6-0 scoreline to West African neighbours, Nigeria while Congo can boast of two points after two draws, including a 1-1 result against Ivory Coast.

Ivory Coast top Group B with four points courtesy of Wednesday’s 1-0 victory against Nigeria.

All four teams stand a chance of qualifying to the semi-finals depending on how the results in the two games will go.
