Black Starlets grab bronze

Lome, March 25, GNA - Black Starlets of Ghana managed a lone goal win over their Tunisian counterparts to grab bronze at the African U-17 Championship in Togo.


The Ghanaians held on to Striker Adams Sadick's 24th minute goal to ensure they returned home at least with a medal, from the tournament many tipped them to win.


Adam's goal that increased his tally to four, the highest so far in the tournament was a pass from Ransford Osei.


He took off and shrugged off his marker before sending a hefty shot past the Tunisian goalkeeper.


The Ghanaians probed to increase the tally and 10 minutes later Abeiku Quansah nearly scored the second goal when he received a pass from the midfield, sped off and gave shot that sailed over the cross bar.


They failed to utilise most of the chances that came their way with Osei and Adams as the most offenders.


In the 42nd minute, Adams messed up with a yawning net when he shot wide.
Let off the hook, the North Africans managed to warm themselves into the game after the recess and dominated play in a manner that made many believed the equalizer was in sight.


Ghana's goalkeeper David Dadzie playing his first game in the tournament, gave many the reason to question why he was kept on the bench for all this while.


In the 77th minute, Dadzie made a spectacular save that denied Tunisians the equalizer when he dived to push to safety a shot from Hadhria Nour.


Both teams together with Nigeria and Togo would represent Africa at the World Under-17 Championship in the Republic of Korea this summer.
