Ghana Black Stars Triumph Over Liberia In An International Friendly

The Black Stars of Ghana got a mind boggling 3-1 win over Liberia on Thursday September 12 in an international Friendly at the Accra Sports stadium.

Goals from Kudus Mohammed, Ernest Nuamah and Jordan Ayew were sufficient to carry the day for the Black Stars. After Chris Hughton’s team romped to victory, all four goals were scored in the second half, with Divine Teah scoring Liberia’s consolation goal.

Coach Hughton rolled out massive team changes for the game and rested a few of the players who played in the 2023 AFCON qualifier against the Central African Republic (CAR) on Thursday September 7.

In addition to Inaki Williams, Lawrence Ati Zigi, Alidu Seidu, Abdul Salis Samed, and Osman Bukari, the Ayew brothers, Jordan and Andre, were left out of the starting lineup.

Abdul Manaf Nurudeen began in post and was safeguarded by a back three of Alexander Djiku, Joseph Aidoo and Nicholas Opoku.

Edmund Addo and Baba Iddrisu monitored the midfield, while Abdul Hamid Fatawu and Kingsley Schindler were conveyed as wing-backs, as Ernest Nuamah and Mohammed Kudus offered help for Antoine Semenyo, who fired up top.

In the first half of the game, the Black Stars couldn’t deliver much forthright, with two or three missed free-kicks from Kudus.

The most obvious opportunity with regards to the half, however, came the way of Semenyo when he was played through on goal but notwithstanding going past the goalkeeper, his weighty touch let him down as the ball carried out of play.

However, in the second half of the match, the Black Stars were aggressive in the front. Nuamah scored in the 51st minute after receiving a lovely ball and putting a shot through the Liberian goalkeeper’s legs.

The Lyon star went from being a scorer to assisting when he set up Kudus to double the Black Stars’ lead in the 73rd minute.

Substitute Jordan Ayew came on to add a third goal after some splendid work down the flanks by debutant Jonathan Sowah but Liberia’s Divine Teah pulled one back as the game finished 3-1.
