In the ongoing Qatar 2022 World Cup, of the five African teams that represented the continent in the tournament, Ghana were the first to score, with two goals from Andre Ayew who found the back of the net from Muhammed Qudus’ assist and a goal from substituted Osman Bukari.
The Ghanaian side is currently levelled with Portugal after Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal from the spot in the 65th minute, Joao Felix’s 78th-minute strike, and Rafael Leao’s in the 80th-minute.
It started with Senegal which played the Netherlands with high hopes that the team will clinch a victory over the Dutch team, viewers were disappointed to see two late goals from the orange side.
The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon became the latest African casualty at the global soccer fiesta, losing 1-0 to European side Switzerland in a Group G tie on Thursday.
Although for the first time, all African
nations are being coached by home-grown gaffers, the results are so far not going the continent’s way until Ghana came into the picture.
