Ghana begun the game with a high Tempo and got their reward on the 17th minute mark when AFC Ajax Amsterdam midfielder Mohammed Kudus scored a beauty to put the visitors 1-0 up.
Sloppy play by Edmund Addo in midfield and Jonathan Mensah’s inability to chase down Karl Namnganda cost Ghana the equalizer four mintues to the end of the first half of the match.
Ghana came into the game stronger but failed to get shots on target in the second half early stages.
Jonathan Mensah following a corner kick had a serious head injury after crashing with a defender inside the box as his situation looked dangerous and needed the ambulance to take him away.
