Egypt’s AFCON opponents Ghana have defeated Uzbekistan’s FC Bunyodkor 2-0 on Tuesday in their last test ahead of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.
The Uzbek side were holding out for a draw until substitute Asamoah Gyan put the Black Stars into the lead after 67 minutes with his first touch of the game.
Anderlecht’s winger Frank Acheampong doubled Ghana’s lead eight minutes later as he followed Bernard Tekpetey’s shot into the net, to earn the Black Stars a 2-0 win.
Ghana were drawn in Group D alongside Egypt, Uganda and Mali. They will kick off their campaign against Uganda on the 17th of January at Stade de Port-Gentil before facing Mali on the 21st and then going head to head against the Pharaohs four days later.
