Sulley Muntari’s last-gasp wonder goal gave hosts Ghana a 2-1 win in their opening Africa Cup of Nations game against Group A opponents Guinea. Muntari rifled a 25-yard shot into the top corner after the Black Stars hit the post three times in the first half.
Asamoah Gyan put Ghana into the lead after 54 minutes with a penalty following a foul from Oumar Kalabane.
Kalabane made amends with a headed equaliser for Guinea, before Muntari saved Ghana with his late winner.
