Ghana's Black Satellites were held to a goalless draw in their opening game of the 2023 African Games on Friday, March 8.

The game at the Accra Sports Stadium saw Desmond Ofei's side fail to take all three points in Group A against Congo.

The Satellites had a great start to the game and were presented with several decent chances but failed to convert them.

Ghana enjoyed the majority of ball possession and had their Congolese counterparts at bay in the entire game.

Both teams headed into the break with nothing separating them.

The return from recess saw Ghana continue from where they left off as they continued to press for the game's opener.

They had a goal disallowed for offside minutes into the second period of the game but that was the closest the team would come to breaking the deadlock.

The opening fixture in Group A ended 0-0 with each team taking a point at the end of 90 minutes.

The Gambia will play Benin in the other group game with three points at stake.

Ghana's next game is against Gambia on March 12.
