The Confederation of African Football (CAF) the regulatory body for football activities on the African continent, has awarded the Black galaxies of Ghana and the entire Group C members of the ongoing CHAN tournament in Algeria three points and three goals after Morocco’s withdrawal.
Following Morocco’s decision to pull out of the ongoing tournament, CAF and other officiators and match commissioners at the ongoing CHAN tournament in Algeria have decided to award Ghana, Sudan, and Madagascar with three points and three goals each. This means that Ghana is last on the table with three points, Madagascar is first with six points after crashing the black galaxies in the first match, and Sudan is second with three points despite not having played yet.
The recent development means Ghana needs a win in their next tie against Sudan to be assured a qualification into the next round of the tournament and Madagascar can only settle for a draw to stay atop of the Group C table.
The Black Galaxies take on Sudan in their second and final group stage match on Thursday, January 19, 2023, after a humiliating defeat to first-timers, Madagascar. The match will be televised live on GTV Sports Plus and all other affiliate channels of the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation, (GBC).
