Ghana miss out on 2020 Olympics

The dream of Ghana to be part of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games has become a failure after the Black Meteors lost 6-5 on penalties to South Africa in the 3rd/4th place playoff of the U-23 AFCON tournament in Egypt.

It would have been the first time since 2004 that the Meteors would have made the multisport event.

Ibrahim Tanko’s side, who were beaten on penalties by Ivory Coast in the semi-final on Tuesday, suffered another penalty heartbreak as the South Africans won 6-5, after the game ended 2-2 after extra time.

South Africa thus join the Ivory Coast and Egypt as Africa’s representatives for the Olympic Games. Ghana have to wait for another four years.
