AFCON Friendlies: Ghana, South Africa share spoils in last pre-tournament match

Ghana's Black Stars will head into the AFCON tournament winless in their preparation matches, after drawing their second tie against South Africa's Bafana Bafana. 

The two sides played out a pulsating draw at the Poluce Stadium in Dubai on Sunday but failed to find the back of the net as they settled for a scoreless draw. 

This was Ghana's second friendly tie, coming on the back of a 1-0 defeat to Namibia in their other friendly match. 

The Black Stars were the better side through the match, but could not make their dominance count as Bafana Bafana defense stood strong.

There were plenty of positives from Kwesi Appiah's men compared to the defeat a week ago, with Thomas Agyepong and Thomas Partey, in particular, dazzling in midfield. 

The two sides will now head to Egypt for the finals, which are set to start on June 21 across five cities in Egypt. 

Ghana is pooled in Group F alongside defending champions Cameroon, Guinea-Bissau and Benin, while South Africa will face Namibia, Morrocco and Ivory Coast in a dangerous group.
