E. Ayiah (P) 45'+4'
E. Ayiah (PM) 86'
R. Danso 90'
...
That is the last piece of action as the referee blows his whistle to bring the contest to an end.
...
90+6' - A long ball comes is from Niger and Danland is there to claim it and he will remain grounded for some time as he looks to kill  time.
...
90+5' - Ghana spending the final minutes in the opposition's half over here. 

Arko-Mensah with a run down the left as he looks to spend some time near the corner flag.
...
90+4' - Sulley with another good hit. But that was blocked by the defender.
...
90+2' - Ghana still looking supremely confident and they are the ones finishing strong as well.
...
Six minutes added on but all of Niger's hopes would have been extinguished with that goal.
...
90' - DANSO! WHAT A SCREAMER!

Niger's resistance has finally been broken. A brilliant strike from Danso whose shot was a rocket flying towards the goal. 

Khaled got to the ball but could only help that into the top corner.
...
87' - Aiyah looks to get in but he was thwarted that time.
...
85' - Meanwhile Ghana has made a change as Toku has gone off for Richard Danso.
...
84' - SAVED!

Khaled read that perfectly and went down saving the shot to his left.
...
83' - Penalty. Again for Ghana. And it is Faroukh again who is late on his challenge - this time it is on Toku. 

Great work from Toku whose clever shift of the ball took the defender by surprise.
...
82' - Painful!

Finally a good delivery into the box but that was punched away by Khaled Lawali. He clatters into Yakubu and he is down.
...
81' - The corner is deep but that is volleyed back into the box. 

Comes back to the original corner taker - Yacine Wa Massamba who plays it to Karim Tinni. Tinni's pass is a bad one and Ghana threaten on the break with Aiyah.

He plays it to the middle where Lavvey was but good tracking back from Farouk Idrissa who gets is toe in and that is out for the corner.
...
80' - Niger with a free kick. 

The delivery is good but Danlad gets that out for a corner.
...
79' - Substitution for Ghana as Mohammed Iddriss comes on for Isaac Gyamfi.

...
77' - Karim Tinni down the left side of the penalty box but just stumbles at the wrong moment.
...
The Niger keeper Khaled Lawali has gone down. He was the only one who didn't go and take fluids during the cooling break.
...
76' - Niger on the front foot and a shot in desperation comes in. 

But way off the mark.
...
Another cooling break ensues.
...
73' - Sulley with the corner now and that flicks over the head of Arko-Mensah. 

That ball is retrieved on the right and Mensah puts in a good ball and it is Arko-Mensah again get up the highest. He gets a good connection to the ball but that was way off target.
...
72' - Good run from Suley and Ghana have another corner.
...
71' - A poor corner results in Niger breaking but yet again a misplaced pass there brings an end to it all.
...
70' - Ball over the top and Aiyah there on the chase. Moctar Ousmane, however, was there every step of the way. And he puts it behind for a corner.
...
68' - Ghana bossing the game here and Toku again looks to go down the right byline. But he is closed down by a couple of Niger players.
...
66' - HOW DID HE MISS THAT?!

Arko Mensah with the ball into Toku who lays it off for Aiyah. His shot was met at the far post by Mensah and from two yards out he puts that over the bar when it seemed harder to miss than score.
...
65' - Tha corner is played short and now Sulley is fouled.
...
64' - Action begins and Toku with some delightful footwork on the right. He glides past two and then tries to curl it on his left. 

That was creeping in but Khaled Lawali was equal to the task.
...
61' - Owusu is down again and it looks like his game is over.
...
59' - Rachid Soumana gets the intercepts the ball from the back from Ghana but his ball is overhit.
...
57' - Toku still down and he is being stretchered off at the moment.
...
56' - Toku with some quick feet at the edge of the box and he goes down in a heap from a challenge from Salim.
Referee deems that fair and the ball falls to Aiyah.

His shot is blocked.



...
54' - The deliver from Arko-Mensah is a poor one.

Straight at the feet of the wall.
...
53' - Ghana down the right and they have again earned themselves a free-kick.
...
52' - Toku with the delivery but that was a very bad delivery that rockets past all. Owusu tries to get that ball back - he does but his studs got stuck in the turf and he has fallen over. 

Ibrahim leads the counter and he produces a good crossfield pass to get Niger through on goal. But a bad touch leads to the attack fizzing off. Sofianne gets the ball back for Niger but his ball is poor as well.
...
51' - Nasser Mahaman conceded a corner for Niger and Ghana are looking dangerous in the early goings.
...
50' - Mensah with a long ball to the left. But Niger get that away easily.
...
48' - Arko-Mensah down the right and he has made a good run there to get to the ball but Rachid Alfari is there and a shoulder barge leads to the Ghanaian rolling on the ground in agony.
...
And we are underway.
...
The players are on the pitch and we are moments away from the game.
...
That's the last kick of the half as the referee blows his whistle for the half.
