The Ghana Black Stars are the only African world cup bound team to win their final international friendly.
The game was played on Tuesday in the Spanish city of Lorca before Ghana name it’s provisional squad for the 2022 World Cup to be held in Qatar in November.
The Black Stars narrowly beat Nicaragua 1-0 as the continent’s five teams to play in Qatar wrapped up their preparations.
They took advantage of this week’s international break to engage in friendlies three weeks before they name their provisional squads.
Senegal were held to a 1-1 draw by fellow World Cup-bound Iran in Austria, Morocco played out to a goalless draw with Paraguay’s while Cameroon and Tunisia lost their matches.
Tunisia suffered a 5-1 defeat by five-time world champions Brazil while Cameroon suffered a 1-0 narrow defeat to South Korea.
Midfielder Abdul Fatawu Issahaku curled in from the edge of the box in the 34th minute to give Ghana the victory over the South Americans.
The Black Stars changed several players from Friday’s 3-0 defeat to Brazil and could have won the game by a wider margin.
Unfortunately the Black Stars attackers could not convert the several scoring opportunities they created in the second-half.
The two matches, over the past week for the Black Stars, have been important as they prepared to take on Portugal, South Korea and Uruguay in Group H at the World Cup.
