Ghana beaten in AFCoN opener

19/01/2015  Comments (3)  jump
Christian Atsu's Ghana surrendered a one-goal lead to lose 2-1 to Senegal in their first game of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.

Everton's on-loan winger was heavily involved in his country's best moments in the first half, winning the penalty from which Andre Ayew scored after a quarter of an hour and then twice going close to extending the advantage.

The Senegalese hit back through Stoke's Mame Biram Diouf and, after Atsu went off after 68 minutes, Moussa Sow scored what would prove to be the winner.

How was Atsu? We need someone on the wings.. We need Pienaar back.
