By Patrick Akoto
Ghana will make a 19th appearance at the Africa Cup of Nations at next year’s finals in South Africa.
The Black Stars beat Malawi 1-0 in the return leg of the Cup of Nations qualifier in Lilongwe on Saturday to complete a 3-0 aggregate win.
Promising midfieder Afriyie Acquah tapped in from close range from Andre Ayew cross in the second minute to give the Ghanaians the precious victory.
The West African heavyweights will be duly represented at the continental showpiece in South Africa where they are expected to challenge for the title.
Ghana placed fourth at the 2012 edition of the African cup of nations held in Gabon and Equitorial Guinea.
