U's International Round Up

Guyana lose opening match, Ghana qualify for AFCON 2021

26 March 2021

It was a mixed bag for the Colchester United internationals overnight with Callum Harriott's Guyana and Kwame Poku's Ghana both in action.

Guyana got their 2022 World Cup qualification bid underway against Trinidad and Tobago, with the Golden Jaguars falling to a 3-0 defeat, thanks to three first half goals. 

Callum Harriott started the game for Guyana, playing seventy-six minutes before being substituted off from the Golden Jaguars' opening fixture in group F. 

It means that Guyana fall to the bottom of group F with a -3 goal difference, although they have the chance to put things right in their next fixture. On Tuesday evening Guyana take on Bahamas in their next game, looking to get a more positive result. 

Ghana had a more successful night on the pitch, qualifying for the Africa Cup of Nations next year with a 1-1 draw with South Africa. 

Although Kwame Poku travelled with the squad he didn't make an appearance for the Black Stars, but he could yet make his debut for the nation in their next game.

On Sunday evening, Ghana complete their AFCON group fixtures with a home match against São Tomé and Príncipe, a side who haven't won any of their games in the group so far.
