The Black Stars are top of Group E with 4 points following a 3-0 win over Madagascar and a 1-1 draw against Central African Republic.

The Black Stars of Ghana on June 5,  2022 could not maintain their 100% record in the AFCON 2023 qualifiers as they were held 1-1 by Central African Republic in Luanda on matchday two.

Otto Addo and his lads were hoping to make it two wins in two games in the qualifying series and took the lead very early on in the first half.

Ajax Amsterdam player, Mohammed Kudus scored on the 17th-minute mark to give Ghana the perfect start.

In what was a fantastic build-up, Afena-Gyan laid the ball to Osman Bukari who flicked the ball to Kudus to pick his spot and curl the ball beyond the reach of the goalkeeper.


Ghana’s goal was cancelled out by Karl Namnganda just before half time to bring the Central African Republic back into the game.
