The spoils are shared after a gripping contest that both sides will feel they could have won. Ghana’s chances of doing so were hampered by the extrmeley harsh dismissal of John Boye in the second half, after which Benin drew level and created chances to claim their first ever win in the tournament. In the end, though, they have to make do with a draw, which is more than they were expected to get before kickoff. Both countries will fanacy their chances of progressing. The Squirrels are on the march! And the Black Stars showed enough quality going forward to suggest they are contenders for outright glory, although their defence will have to shape up a lot.
