Niger vs. Ghana  0 - 3

General Game Stats Chart


Minute   Description
90' +4 Ooh! Final chance falls to Clottey, and if he had converted that it would have done wonders for his confidence!
90' +2 Ghana are holding onto the ball and Niger are more than happy to let them keep it. Just a case of the referee blowing the final whistle now.
90' Alhassane leaves the field of play on a stretcher, but it looks like more of a knock than a serious injury. There shouldn't be too much stoppage time here, and I don't think Niger want any.
89' Alhassane is down for Niger and looks in some pain, the stretcher is on too. Not quite sure what happened there, but he's been down for a while.
87' M. Soumaïla gets yellow.
Asante looks to break for Ghana, after Niger fail to convert a corner, and is cynically brought down as he crossed the half way line. Bad challenge, and it definitely merited the yellow card for Soumaila.
85' Ghana are sitting deep, and Maazou is being frustrated. He hasn't got those acres of space to run into behind the opposition defence, and is suffering as a result.
83' As it stands, Ghana go through to the next stages at the top of Group B, and will face Cape Verde in the next round, whereas Niger will finish bottom of the group with the only point in their Africa Cup of Nations history.
81' Ghana are passing the ball comfortably around their back four now, the result is merely a formality. Clottey has done okay since coming on, looking lively on the ball.
79' A. Issoufou enters the game and replaces M. Sidibé.
Atsu absolutely roasts Kader for pace, and collects a free kick for his efforts. The Porto winger has been unplayable in this match, he's just too fast for Niger to deal with him effectively.
78' E. Clottey enters the game and replaces A. Gyan.
