WAFU U-17 Championship: Togo 0 – 3 Ghana – Black Starlets thrash Sparrow Hawks to book semi-final berth


Ghana’s Black Starlets thrashed the Sparrow Hawks of Togo 3-0 to book a berth in the semi-final of the ongoing West African Football Union (WAFU) zone B tournament in Ghana on Friday afternoon.

The Starlets loss their first game of the competition to the Golden Eaglets of Nigeria by a 4-2 score line.

The two teams didn’t play well in the first half of the match as they both failed to create good chances with Togo showing glimpses.

Youngster Pius Adua scored the first goal of the match after connecting a cross from  winger Andrews Appiah.

Razak Salifu struck from outside the penalty box into the net to give Ghana a 2-0 lead in the entertaining second half goal with a wonderfully taken shot.

Captain Collins Agyemang’s cross was handled by a Togo defender and elected himself to take the kick and scored to make it 3-0.

Ghana are through to the semi-final and are likely to come up against Burkina Faso in the semi-final.
