Kossi Anika’s lone goal was not enough to help Togo overcome a 5-1 deficit as they defeated Ghana 1-0 in the second leg of the Africa U23 Cup of Nations qualifiers.
The Black Meteors were heading into the game with a comfortable advantage after walloping their counterparts in the first leg match in Kumasi.
Anika found the back of the net in the 19th minutes to give his side a lifeline however Ghana maintained their composure throughout the game to ensure they would not concede more goals.
Ghana thus progress on a 5-1 aggregate score and will be facing Gabon in the next round of qualifiers.
The Black Meteors are yet to feature in the Africa U23 Cup of Nations tournament since its introduction in 2011.
