Ghana defender Abeiku Ainooson was named man of match after their semi-final penalty shootout victory over Nigeria at the Africa Nations Championship on Wednesday.

Ainooson began the match as the right-back and was later re-assigned as centre-back after Kwabena Adusei was sent off in the 64th minute.

The Asante Kotoko player also scored one Ghana’s four spot-kicks in their 4-1 victory.

The match ended goalless after 120 minutes of football.

Ghana players have won man of the match awards in all five matches played at the tournament.

    Those idiots who were selfishly bashing Konadu for picking only Kotoko players as well as mediocre players should now bow their heads in shame.
