Ghana’s beach soccer team, the Black Sharks have exited the group stages of the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations held in Nigeria after losing 5-4 to their Egyptian counterparts.

The Black Sharks were battered 5-0 by Ivory Coast in their opening match at the tournament, and were hoping to recover by gaining a favourable result in their second match against Egypt.

However, it turned out to be the end of the road for the Ghana team as they lost, ending any hopes of making it to the Beach Soccer World Cup in Bahamas next year.

Ghana took a 2-1 lead courtesy Richard Osa and Mo Huseini into half time but were quickly pegged back by the Egyptians after the break. The Black Sharks again took the lead only for Egypt to equalize after a short while.

A fury of goals from both sides afterwards kept the scoreline deadlocked at 4-4, until the Egyptians snatched a late winner to dump Ghana out of the tournament.

The loss leaves Ghana rock-bottom with no points after two matches in group A. The team will next play against host nation Nigeria in their third and final game.
