Daniel Afriyie Barnieh continued his fine form to help the Black Galaxies beat Nigeria in the CHAN qualifiers.

The forward scored from the spot-kick to propel Ghana to a 2-0 first leg win over Nigeria.

His club teammate Seidu Suraj added a second with four minutes remaining to put the Black Galaxies in a strong position ahead of the second leg scheduled for Abuja on September 3rd.

Ghana is hoping to return to the CHAN tournament following a long absence from the tournament.

The Black Galaxies can book their place in the tournament which is scheduled for Algeria next year if they avoid a heavy defeat against Nigeria in the second leg.
