Ghana’s U-20 men’s national team beat Sierra Leone 2-1 at home to go through to the last round of qualifying for the 2015 Africa Youth Championship.
The victory in Tamale on Saturday completed a 4-1 aggregate victory for the Black Satellites, who were silver-medalists at the last finals after winning the reverse game 2-0 a fortnight ago in Bo.
The Black Satellites will now meet either Rwanda or Gabon for a place in the Championship.
Ghana scored in either half of the game at the Tamale Stadium to complete back-to-back wins over the Shooting Stars in the second-round stage.
Ishmael Camara scored for the Shooting Stars after 35 minutes but it only proved to be a consolation as Ghana rallied from a goal down to score twice.
George Agyepong scored the equaliser with just two minutes remaining to end the first half.
And after recess, it took the Black Satellites nine minutes to double their advantage which happened to be winner through Latif Abubakar.
Sellas Tetteh’s side will now join fourteen teams in the final stage of qualifying to compete for the seven slots available at next year’s finals to be hosted by Senegal.
