Satellites beat Egypt to win mini tourney

The Black Satellites staged a fight to win the three-nation mini football tournament after defeating Egypt 3-0 in the duel played at the Accra Sports Stadium on Thursday.

Ghana walked into the game with a point picked in the first match with Namibia and needed a win to move to the summit of the table and they responded in style with three unanswered goals that condemned the North Africans to the bottom of the log.

Benjamin Fadi sent the team ahead on the half hour mark when he stepped forward to convert a spot kick after an advancing Roger Sackey was sent flying by the Egyptians back line.

Egypt with a goal down staged a fight but it was Wa All Stars Midfielder, Seidu Salifu who headed in the second goal to hand the Black Satellites a 2-0 lead before the break.

Patrick Twumasi added another on the 74 minute to wrap up the game.

The results means Namibia finished second with two points with Egypt claiming one. GNA
