Ghana’s slow start to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations continued on Saturday night when they were held to a 0-0 draw by Group F rivals Cameroon at the Ismailia Stadium.
The result sees the Indomitable Lions on top of the group standings with four points, while the Black Stars are second with two points. However, the log order could well be altered by the late game on Saturday between Benin and Guinea-Bissau.Ghana settled the quicker of the two teams and created the first clear chance in the ninth minute, with Jonathan Mensah teeing up Thomas Partey for a shot in the middle of the penalty area, but the midfielder sent his effort high and wide.
The Black Stars were soon dealt a major blow, though, when winger Christian Atsu appeared to tweak a hamstring while shooting wide from distance in the 12th minute. The Newcastle United man was replaced by Samuel Owusu shortly thereafter.
