Ghana began their campaign in the 2017 U-17 World Cup in India with a 1-0 win over Colombia at the Nehru Stadium in Delhi. The goal was scored by Sadiq Ibrahim in the 39th minute. He met captain Eric Ayiah’s low cross from the left.

The second half was a ding-dong battle. It was laced with chances for the two sides. Ayiah was put through, but the Colombian defence managed to clear the danger. A Colombian cross was missed by Ghana goalie Ibrahim Danlad, but the South Americans could not take advantage.

After 96 minutes of play, the referee ended the match for Ghana to celebrate their first victory of the tournament.
