Ghana Coach CK Akonnor’s Future Hangs In The Balance After South Africa Defeat

The future of Ghana head coach Charles Kwablan Akonnor hangs in the balance after the shambolic showing against South Africa in the World Cup qualifiers.

Black Stars were handed their first defeat in the qualifications by South Africa on Monday at the FNB Stadium.

The Bafana Bafana recorded a deserving 1-0 victory to go top of Group G with the only goal scored by Bongokuhle Hlongwane.
