Their last test game before heading for the June 21-July 19 continental championship where they have been drawn against Cameroon, Benin and Guinea-Bissau in the group stage, the Black Stars could only hold out for a 0-0 draw against Bafana Bafana in Dubai, UAE.
Worryingly, Ghana are set to go into their Afcon adventure without having scored in any of their preparatory games, having lost 1-0 to Namibia in their first warm-up tie.
Below are some social media reactions after Saturday's disappointment:
Two friendlies and no goal. Hmm— Delalorm S Semabia (@Delalorm) June 15, 2019
