Ghanaians worldwide celebrated their U20 triumph in Mauritania on their 64th Independence Day.
The West Africans proved too strong with a 2-0 victory over first-timers Uganda at Stade Municipal in the Mauritanian capital of Nouakchott on Saturday evening.
Captain Daniel Afriyie Barnieh registered both goals in either half of the match.
It was the Black Satellites’ fourth title following successes in 1993, 1999 and 2009.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo, Black Stars captain, Andre Ayew, and others were all in a jubilant mood after Black Satellites victory.
“Congratulations to the Black Satellites for winning Ghana’s 4th AFCON U-20 trophy. Thoroughly deserved victory, and they’ve made Mother Ghana proud. What a way to celebrate our 64th Independence Anniversary!!” President Addo posted on his official Facebook page.
“Congratulations boys. Africa u20 champions!!! You have made the nation proud 10 years later, and it’s coming home. It’s just the beginning. Proud nation.”
Leicester City defender Daniel Amartey tweeted, “Congrats, Black Satellites”.
After guided his side to one of Africa’s most famous comeback in Nigeria, Sierra Leone coach John Keister has applauded his super subs on Friday.
All four of Keister’s changes providing the inspiration the Leone Stars needed coming from four-goal down to earn a remarkable 4-4 in 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Benin City, Edo State.
“We’re delighted. Playing away in Nigeria as always was going to be difficult,” Keister told journalists during his post-match.
“I think we showed Nigeria a lot of respect in the first half, but we realised we needed to bring in fresh legs and important players we left out.”
“The difference was the changes that we made. I’m not disappointed we didn’t win the match. We can’t be too greedy. We’ll take the draw to Freetown. I think it was a game of two halves.”
Meanwhile, the President of the Nigerian Football Federation Amaju Pinnick has summoned Gernot Rohr and his technical crew to a meeting on Saturday what many Nigerians described a poor showing against Sierra Leone.
Nigeria still leaders of Group L with seven points from three games but a defeat in Sierra Leone will leave the race to Cameroon wide open.
The Leone Stars are third with two points after three matches with Benin and Lesotho set to play their game on the 14th of November.
