Ghana Gains 2017 AFCON Quarter-Final Ticket Thanks To Gyan Goal

In the later Group D game Egypt beat Uganda 1-0 at Port-Gentil on Saturday, mathematically eliminating the Cranes from their first tournament in 39 years thanks to Ghana's earlier win over Mali.

A goalless stalemate seemed inevitable until a sweeping Egyptian move in the 89th minute culminated in Salah controlling inside the box and teeing up El Said, whose low shot was too powerful for Onyango.

"We let it go a bit in the second half but the result was much more important".

Experienced forward Asamoah Gyan grabbed the only goal of the game to become his country's leading all-time scorer in the continental championship with an eighth career strike across six tournaments.

Ghana defeated Mali by lone courtesy Asamoah Gyans header, from Jordan Ayew's cross in the 20th minute.

"We are pleased with our performance", Gyan said.

In an attempt to assure compliance, OPEC set up an oversight committee to keep participating nations' production in check. Investors have doubted that OPEC and its allies can trim output enough to push up prices.

Sako's free kick could have given Mali the last smile, but again the Ghana defence, stood firm and ensure the three maximum points was intact.

Ghana defender Baba Abdul-Rahman travelled from the Black Stars camp to London on Friday night to undergo further tests over a knee injury he suffered at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.

Uganda had the ball in Egypt's net in the 51st minute but Joseph Ochaya was offside when he finished off an in-swinging cross. In tournaments like this you need to collect points and that's what we did.

Ghana were hanging on right until the end, with goalkeeper Razak making a fine reaction save to deny substitute Kalifa Coulibaly from point-blank range in the 90th minute and then beating away a Sako volley in injury time.

But as the minutes ticked by Egypt managed to apply more pressure and El Said pounced on the counter-attack to sweep the victor past keeper Denis Onyango.
