Goals by Zah Krangar helped Liberia to clinch a 2-0 win over Ghana in anÂ international friendly in Monrovia on Tuesday.
The Lone Star raced into a two-goal lead thanks to strikes from theÂ Indonesia-based attacker who plays for Persrpura Jayapura.
Krangar took advantage of miscommunication between Black Stars centralÂ defenders John Boye and Jerry Akaminko on six minutes to slot in his first strike.
In a similar attack which was started from the right, defender Razak NuhuÂ failed to clear at the first attempt allowing Krangar to pounce in the boxÂ in the 9th minute.
But the Black Stars were denied the chance of taking the lead in the second minute when captainÂ Asamoah GyanÂ goal was ruled offside.
The first-half was played for just forty minutes which led to complains byÂ the Black Stars players over the decision to shorten the game.
Coach Kwesi Appiah made several changes after the break to improve theÂ chances of the Black Stars drawing level.
Isaac Coffie was replaced by Anthony Annan while Derek Boateng made way forÂ Richmond Baokye Yiadom with Rashid Sumaila taking the place of injured JohnÂ Boye.
The Black Stars lifted their game with Chrsitian Atsu narrowly missing theÂ target with only goalkeeper Nathaniel Sherman at his mercy after beingÂ set-up by Gyan.
The stand-in captain Gyan blasted wide before making way for Abdul MajeedÂ Waris and Kwadwo Asamoah's pile-driver could not get the consolation for theÂ Black Stars.
The Ghanaians mounted a late siege on the Liberian goal area but that couldÂ not prevent the home side from clinching their 17th victory over the BlackÂ Stars.
