A powerful left foot strike from Winful Cobbinah handed Ghana a 1-0 win over Mali in a Group A match at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium on Saturday, September 16 to book the Black Stars a spot in the semifinals of the 2017 WAFU Cup of Nations.
Mali tried to find their way back into the game, but were unable to break down a well-organised Black Stars defence as the match ended 1-0.
The result means Ghana are at the top of Group A with six points and have confirmed their spot in the semifinals of the competition.
Nigeria are second in Group A on two points following their goalless draw with Guinea earlier in the day.
Mali and Guinea are third and fourth on the standings with one point to their names and will have to win their last group game on Monday, September 18 to stay in the tournament.
