26th African Cup Of nations: Ghana vrs Guinea 2-1

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.

The game began scrappily with the long grass holding up the ball and causing several collisions
