But at seventy-six minutes, Ghana tied up the game. Finally Gomaa came back with the game winning goal at eighty-seven minutes.
Since then, Ghana went on to beat Benin and Algeria in the Group stage, officials tell news. It delivered three goals in their next two games, winning them both and never giving up a single point. Egypt, in contrast, did much the same, with one point wins against the same countries.
In the semifinals, Egypt shocked news with a stunning 2-0 victory over Nigeria. Ghana however narrowly advanced on penalty kicks after a scoreless outcome during regular time. A scoreless outcome today, however, won’t give Ghana a title.
