U-20 AFCON: Ghana clash with Burkina Faso rescheduled

1 min


Ghana’s opening clash with Burkina Faso at the U-20 African Cup of Nations in Niger on Sunday was called off due to problems with the floodlights at the venue.

The Group B match was scheduled to take place in the city of Maradi on Sunday evening but organisers reported to the teams that there was a fault with the lighting system.

This resulted in the decision by the organisers to call off the match and ponder alternative plans for the match to take place.

With the weather severely hot during the day, organisers decided to fix matches for the evening but with floodlight problems now popping up the matches could be rescheduled for the afternoons.

Nigeria opened their U-20 Africa Cup of Nations account with a hard-fought 2-0 win over Burundi on Saturday, February 2, 2019 at the Stade General Seyni Kountche in Niamey.

Siphesihle Mkhize scored twenty minutes from time to rescue a point for South Africa in the opening match of the tournament against hosts Niger in Niamey.
