WAFU U-17 Cup of Nations: Black Starlets crashed-out by Côte D’Ivoire

The Starlets of Ghana on Tuesday crashed out of the ongoing WAFU U-17 Cup of Nations after a painful 3-1 loss to Cote D’Ivoire at the stad de Kugue in Togo.

Ghana needed just a point to advance to the semi finals of the competition but the performance was met by profligacy in front of goal and some controversial referee decisions.

Togolese referee Vincentia Enyonam Amedome waved play on, on two occasions much t the dismay of the technical bench following glaring obstructions on captain Abdul Fatawu Issahaku and Samuel Boakye in the Ivorian penalty area.

The Ivorians opened the scoring in the 10thminute through Moses Junior Razak Fofana. He latched on to a loose ball in the Ghanaian defence to score the opener.

In the second half, Charles Likpa scored the second goal for the Ivorians but Ghana replied two minutes later through John Batigi.
