Ghana 5 Togo 1
( Owusu Kwabena 18th, 72nd, 73rd. Osman Bukari 63rd. Nassam Yakubu 85th. / Klidje Thibault 33rd)
The former Asokwa Deportivo striker was the hero at the Babayara stadium in October 2016 scoring a superb brace to help the Black Stars B win 2-1 over Ivory Coast in the 2016 CHAN qualifier.
Generally the Dinamo Brest forward performed well despite not getting onto the score sheet. He provided the assist for Osman Bukari to score and his contribution to the team in terms of pressing the opponents and attacking spaces were equally beneficial to the team.
But the 28th minute of the game particularly caught the attention of the crowd when Ghana were awarded a penalty after former Asokwa Deportivo forward Joel Fameyeh was brought down in the box.
Yaw Yeboah – who donned the prestigious number 10 shirt – wanted to take the spot kick but Fameyeh who created the penalty opportunity elected himself to effect it but saw his poor kick saved by goalkeeper Aigba Abdoul Moubarak.
“Yes I wanted to take it but Fameyeh also had the confidence to effect it so there was no problem.” Yeboah said after the game.
“He told me he wanted to take it but unfortunately he missed it but thats okay. Its part of the game. The most important thing is that we won. That is what matters most” the CD Numancia offensive midfielder explained.
Togo will receive the Ghana on December 22 for the second leg in Lome.
