The Black Meteors of Ghana booked a place to the semi-final stage of the ongoing U23 Africa Cup of Nations following a 2-0 win over Mali on Thursday.

Coach Ibrahim Tanko’s men needed to overcome their West African counterparts to qualify for the seminal round after failing to win any of their first two games.

The Black Meteors started the game on the back foot as the Malian dominated open play and nearly grabbed the opener but for agile hands of goalkeeper Kwame Baah kept them at bay.

After both teams failed to break the deadlock, Ghana came back from recess looking a different team altogether.
