Video: Antoine Semenyo Goal For Ghana

Antoine Semenyo has inked his name on the scoresheet y keeping Ghana on the winning race in the AFCON qualifiers.

Ghana clashed Angola in the match day one (1) at the Baba Yara Sports stadium in Kumasi.

Antoine Semenyo scored with a smashing shot in the penalty box during a haphazardly play during a free-kick by Joseph Paintsil.

The second half substitute profited from poor defending in the final minute to bundled home the winner.

Goalkeeper Lawrence Ati Zigi was tested early in the game after struggling to deal with a long range strike from Angolan midfielder Manuel Alfonso.

The game immediately switched with Dennis Odoi bursting on the right, sending in a cross which was beautiful controlled by Mohammed Kudus before firing from inside the box, only to miss by inches wide.

Moments later, Thomas Partey weaved his way through a sea of midfielders before laying it to Inaki Williams, whose effort was blocked.

Alfonso nearly gave the visitors the lead after rising above Odoi to connect from a freekick, but Ati Zigi was at the right place to force a corner kick. Kialonda Gaspar’s header from the corner did not trouble the Ghana defence.

Jordan Ayew thought he had won a penalty after he was brought down in the box but the referee waved play on.

Angola seized control of the game in the final ten minutes of the first half and a clumsy tackle by Amartey on Caneiro nearly gifted the Palancas Negras a penalty.

After the break, Kamaldeen Sulemana pulled a great save out of the Angolan goalkeeper Neblu after cutting in with his left before firing with his right.
