OUR MANIFESTO: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
The AFCON qualifier match between the Ghana Black Stars and their South African counterparts was interrupted by a pitch invader.
During the match which was played at the Cape Coast Stadium, a young man got the match halted after running onto the pitch.
While the referee and the players stopped to watch, the young man got chased by stadium security and some police officials.
The interesting aspect was when stadium security fell flat on the pitch after diving to catch the invader.
The unidentified young man, after letting the security personnel fall, swerved another policeman and run back to where he was coming from.
It was at the point where he got close to some Blackstars defenders that he was caught and taken away.
The incident and the video that was captured have gone viral with many Ghanaians making fun of the issue.
It is, however, not known whether the pitch invader took the action for fun or had a motive behind doing so.
Meanwhile, the match continued after the incident as the Black Stars triumphed over their South African counterparts.
With a first-half goal from midfielder Thomas Partey and a second 80th-minute goal from Kudus, the Black Stars won by two goals as the Bafana Bafana boys did not score any goal.
