1. Ghana hold on against rampant Blue Sharks
Cape Verde did not give up against Ghana, in a pulsating match played in Port Elizabeth. Mubarak Wakaso put the Black Stars into the lead after a dubious penalty was awarded to the Ghanaians, but this merely sparked the Blue Sharks into action as they pressed for an equaliser into a tense affair in front of vociferous fans at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium. Wakaso eventually sealed the tie in the dying embers, but no-one will ever forget Cape Verde's assault on Ghana's goal.
