All Africa Games: Nigeria Beat Ghana 2–0


Nigeria beat Ghana 2 – 0 on Wednesday in the 2015 All Africa Games match in Brazzaville. Nigeria outplayed Ghana in their opening 2015 All-Africa Games football match to reach the semi-finals in Brazzaville. Junior Ajayi scored on 55 minutes at Stade de l’Unite in the Congolese capital and Kingsley Sokari added a second goal three minutes from time. There are only three sides in Group B after Egypt withdrew rather than field a weakened team, and this enabled the Nigerians to secure a swift passage to the knockout stage. Defending champions Ghana are in trouble with just one point from two matches and a minus-two goal difference. They hope Nigeria defeat second-place Senegal by at least three goals Saturday — a result that would allow Ghana to squeeze through on goal difference.

Daniel Etor set up Ajayi for the deadlock-breaking goal and an exchange of passes with captain Azubuike Okechukwu created a chance for Sokari to score via an exquisite lob. The under-23 tournament continues Thursday with Group A fixtures between Congo and Burkina Faso and Sudan and Zimbabwe.

Cameroon have won four of the previous 10 All-Africa Games football competitions, Egypt two and Congo, Nigeria, Algeria and Ghana one each
