Ghana Sails to Final Amidst Pandemonium

Splinters of bottles and Pebbles rained down uncontrollably yesterday at the Nuevo Estadio de Malabo, venue of the semi-final match between the Black Stars of Ghana and the AFCON host, Equatorial Guinea which ended in 3-0 in favour of the Black Stars.



 

  1. While the security helicopter hovered around the stadium to instill normalcy, Ghana fans massed behind a goal to seek refuge from the incessant missiles being unleashed at them by the angry fans of Equatorial Guinea.

The Black Stars had taken a 2-0 lead into half-time, having opened the score-line when Jordan Ayew dispatched a penalty after Kwesi Appiah had been fouled by keeper Felipe Ovono. The lead was doubled when Mubarak Wakaso drilled home following a counter-attack.
At the end of first half, crowd unrest was already evident, with the Ghana players shielded by police in riot gear as they left the pitch. Within three minutes of play into the second half, Ghana has completed a 3-0 win to reach Sunday final against Ivory Coast.
The resounding victory over the AFCON host sparked off a nearly uncontrollable riot at the venue as bottles and several objects were thrown at Ghanaian players and their fans, littering the running track around the pitch.
When police moved in with an attempt to restore normalcy in Malabo, it took a considerable of time before the Ghana fans were safely escorted from the stadium.

  1. Ghana will play Ivory Coast on Sunday in a final match of the tournament.
