Black Galaxies friendly against Algeria ends goalless

Black Galaxies pre-CHAN friendly encounter against the hosts Algeria at the Nelson Mandela Stadium on Saturday afternoon ended goalless.

Before the tournament begins next week, Ghana played the North Africans in the first of two friendlies in Algiers.

Just 25 minutes into the game, Ghana was forced to make an early substitute as captain Gladson Awako was replaced by Sylvester Simba.

Algeria gained control of the game, commanding and posing challenges to the Black Galaxies. The Black Galaxies’ best performers were Solomon Adomako, Dominic Nsobila, and David Abagna.

Both teams went into the halftime break without scoring, thanks to the Black Galaxies’ efforts. Algeria continued where they left off after the half, dominating possession and dictating the game.

With five minutes remaining, Kwame Otu replaced Abdul Razak, but the Black Galaxies were unable to break down the tenacious Algerian defense.

Ghana will play Mozambique in a pre-CHAN friendly ahead of the 2022 CHAN tournament.

After competing in the tournament in Cote D’Ivoire, Sudan, and South Africa in 2009, 2011, and 2014, respectively, Ghana will be making a record-breaking fourth CHAN participation.
