The Black Challenge of Ghana passed the quarter-final hurdle to secure a semi-final slot in the ongoing 2024 African Amputee African Cup of Nations after beating Tanzania 4-1 at the Petrol Sports Stadium in Cairo, Egypt.

Braces from Yussif Yahaya and Hamza Mohammed, who have been instrumental for the Black Challenge, were enough to seale the win for the two-time champions.

The defending champions continued their impressive run of form in the 2024 AAFCON Tournament, having already beaten Gambia, Algeria, Kenya, and Tanzania en route to the semi -final.

Ghana’s Black Challenge, who are handled by young Coach Steve Obeng, have scored 15 goals and allowed in only 2 goals against them in the AAFCON tournament with 2 clean sheets.

Ghana, who have won the previous two editions of the tournament, aim to become the first nation in the history of the competition to win three successive crowns, but have to battle against Algeria in the semi-final stage of the tournament on Saturday, May 25, 2024, as they seek to defend their title in Cairo, Egypt.

Ghana brushed aside the North African side 5-0 in their second group stage match and would be hoping to repeat the same performance in the semi-final of the 2024 AACON Tournament.

The two-time AAFCON winners would be hoping to build on their unbeaten streak in the AAFCON Tournament as a morale booster in their quest to defend the coveted trophy to become to first nation to achieve an AAFCON three-peat.

The defending champions are not only eyeing the coveted trophy but also aiming to qualify for the 2026 World Cup, and they will be counting on the experience of veteran players in the side to attain those feats.
