Ghana won its first ever international match to finish 6th in the Power Horse Beach Soccer tournament held in Durban.
The Black Stars crashed Seychelles 8-2 over the weekend to record its first win at a major Beach Soccer tournament over the weekend.
The team bounced back from their opening defeats to Nigeria and Mozambique in grand fashion at the tournament that ended with Senegal emerging as winners after beating Cote d’Ivoire in the finals.
The team presented just six players for their opening games with the remaining four players arriving late due to flight challenges.
Their defeats in the opening stages of the tournament were thus widely attributed to the fact that they didn’t have the full complement of their squad during the early stages of the competition.
The Black Sharks faced serious problems with raising funds to take part in the tournament.
Officials of the Ghana Beach Soccer Association however managed to galvanize some resources late on to ensure the team traveled to Durban to take part in the competition.
The Black Stars finished 6th after picking up a win – their first ever at a major tournament with Nigeria finishing third
