Ghana has secured a place at next year's AFCON tournament in Cameroon after playing out a 1-1 draw with South Africa today in Johannesburg.
The Black Stars earned the point they needed from this game to book their ticket to the tournament in this hotly contested Group C qualifiers.
A win for the South Africans would have seen them through, but, they fell short of expectations and had to fight back to earn a point.
The Bafana Bafana must now travel to Sudan this weekend and avoid defeat on Sunday to qualify for the event next year.
A win for the Sudanese will see them through.
Ghana scored first early in the second half through Mohammed Kudus who plays for Dutch giants, Ajax, but, his effort was cancelled out by Percy Tau of English Premiership side, Brighton as the spoils were shared.
Also today, the Comoros Island qualified for the first time after playing out a goalless draw with Togo as were the Gambia who beat Angola 1-0 at home.
Record winners of the tournament Egypt also booked their place next year after a 1-1 draw away to Kenya; Gabon qualified after beating DR Congo 3-0 at home.
They have joined hosts Cameroon, Senegal, Algeria, Mali, Burkina Faso and Guinea who all clinched their place earlier.
