The Black Satellites stood tall during the shoot-out against Mali to set up a match with Egypt in the grand finale

Ghana qualified to the finals of the African Youth Championship through a 4-2 penalty shoot-out victory against Mali.

The two teams failed to break the deadlock after 120 minutes of action.

The Malians created more chances and deserved to have won the match to prevent 30 minutes of extra time.

Both teams fought hard during the extra time but the goal drought continued.

Francis Narh missed his spot kick but Ghana’s goalkeeper; Eric Ofori Antwi was the hero of the match after saving two kicks from the Malians.

Richmond Nketia converted the last spot kick to ensure the Black Satellites picked the ticket for the grand finale

Sellas Tetteh’s men will face of with Egypt in the finals on Saturday.

The former Rwanda coach is chasing a second continental title after leading Ghana in the 2009 success.

The Black Satellites will win it the fourth time if they beat Egypt after clinching the 1993, 199 and 2009 titles.
