Ghana And Comoros Game Ends 0-0 In 2018 World Cup Qualifier
The national team, the Black Stars could not pick the three maximum points at stake in their 2018 World Cup qualifier with the Ayatollahs of Comoros.

The home side made their intentions clear as they packed the bus with as many as nine men in defence and only came out occasionally to run after the ball.

They looked a compact side and succeeded in keeping the marauding Ghana attack at bay in a game which saw their captain and arrow head, Asamoah Gyan start from the bench. The first half ended 0-0.

In the second half, the Black Stars looked more rejuvenated from the instructions of Avram Grant as they kept the goal area of the home side boiling with occasional drives. One of such kicks saw Mubarak Wakaso send a fierce shot which missed the target in the 54 minute.

Coach Avram did some reshuffling of his team and brought on Agyeman Badu who breathed some life in the team’s play.

A free-kick by the Comoros nearly took Ghana’s goalkeeper, Razak Braimah in the 70 minute as he looked stranded but was lucky to have the resultant kick inches away from his goal.

A Warris, Wakaso inter-positional play should have seen captain of the day, Dede Ayew plant the ball in the net but he misfired.

The Comoros side did their usual thing, sit back and counter attack; which saw them in the 77 minute score what looked like a good goal but was ruled off-side.

Asamoah Gyan replaced Majeed Warris in the 84 minute and his inclusion brought in some urgency as Agyeman Badu hit the woodwork only for the rebound to be missed narrowly by Swansea Player, Andre.

Ghana nearly scored on the 90 minte mark but missed the post by inches to end the game at 0-0.

The return encounter is supposed to be played at the Baba Yara Stadium on Tuesday, November 17.
