Satellites rout Morocco 4-1 in U-20 qualifier

24 September 2012 | Sports News

Ghana hold the advantage to qualify to the 2013 African Youth Championship finals after beating Morocco 4-1 on Sunday in the final round first leg tie.

The Black Satellites took the lead through South Africa-based winger Frank Sarfo Gyamfi who finished off a through pass from Moses Odjer in the 31st minute.

But the Atlas Cubs came back from the break revitalized and levelled the scoring two minutes into play.

Striker Chibi Mohammed made use of a counter-attack to beat Ghana goalkeeper Felix Annan.

Seven minutes later, Ghana captain Lawrence Lartey headed home from a Derrick Mensah corner to give the Satellites the lead.

Substitute Frank Acheampong was at the right place to head in the third goal on 58 minutes after a goal bound shot deflected off the body of a Moroccan.

On the 90th minute mark, the Thailand-based player rounded the Moroccan goalkeeper after a delicious counter-attack to seal the win for the 2009 Africa and World champions.

Ghana travel to Rabat in a fortnight time for the second leg tie.
