10-man Black Stars open AFCON campaign with disappointing draw

John Boye was dismissed after a controversial second booking in the 54th minute for apparent time-wasting, giving Benin the advantage to secure a draw with the Black Stars.

A superb save from Farnolle prevented Thomas Partey’s 25-yard free-kick finding the back of the net, forcing Ghana to settle for a point from their opening outing at the tournament.

Ghana face Cameroon in Group F on Saturday, while Benin face Guinea-Bissau on the same day.
