Sudan 1-0 Ghana
It is the Black Stars first defeat of the qualifiers after three straight victories.
Nine points from three games meant Charles Akonnor’s side would have become the third country to qualify had they drew or won against Sudan.
The defeat doesn’t change the fact they can still qualify. All the Black Stars have to do is avoid defeat in the remaining games against South Africa (away) and Sao Tome and Principe (home).
