Ghana delivered a convincing performance in an international friendly against Liberia at the Accra Sports Stadium on Tuesday evening, particularly shining in the second half.
Building on their previous victory in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifications, where Ernest Nuamah and Mohammed played pivotal roles, Ghana secured a comfortable 3-1 win. Nuamah and Mohammed each scored a goal to ensure Ghana’s triumph.
Ghana’s head coach, Chris Hughton, introduced several changes to the team that had defeated the Central African Republic in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers the previous Thursday.
Young talent Nuamah earned a starting position following his impressive second-half performance against Central Africa, where he scored the match-winning goal. Medeama SC’s Abdul Fatawu Hamidu and Jonathan Sowah made their debuts, along with Hamburger defender Stephan Ambrosius.
Ghana came close to breaking the deadlock just two minutes after kickoff, but an outstanding save by goalkeeper Boison Wynney denied the Black Stars an early lead.
Throughout the game, Ghana maintained their dominance, keeping the Liberian attack at bay, as Liberia struggled to muster a single on-target attempt.
Bournemouth star Antoine Semenyo missed an opportunity to open the scoring for the Black Stars in the 35th minute, despite a brilliant run from the center that saw him round the goalkeeper.
Ghana finally broke the deadlock seven minutes into the second half when Nuamah found the back of the net with a superb strike.
West Ham’s new recruit, Kudus, extended Ghana’s lead with an excellent close-range effort, capitalizing on a pass from Nuamah.
Substitute Jordan Ayew increased Ghana’s lead with a rebound goal, while Divine Rosevelt Teah secured a consolation goal for Liberia in the closing stages of the game.
Ghana’s next international friendly will be against the US Men’s Soccer Team in October, followed by a match against Madagascar in the opening game of the 2026 World Cup qualifiers in November.
