Ghana Goalie Lawrence Ati Zigi Makes A Great Save
Black Stars goalkeeper Lawrence Ati Zigi made a terrific leap to punch out an Angolan goal-bound shot in the 18th minute. Ghana which won the first leg in Kumasi three days ago had come under heavy pressure on the return leg.
In the 44th minute, he again used his foot to block the ball from rolling to the path of two well-positioned Angolan attackers whose job would have been a simple tap-in.
The trend continued to force some good saves by Ati Zigi. Ghana’s defenders are working overtime to keep the scoresheet clean in this titanic duel that looks like a cliffhanger for all group contenders. A slip could end the dream of participating in the African Cup of Nations 2023.
Ghana however has some grit in midfield where star boy Mohammed Kudus is a feature, and together with the attackers shows glimpses of their deadly instincts and possibly reveals themselves as a surprise package in this hard fight.
