Defending champions Ghana lost 2-1 to Burkina Faso on Saturday, 14 May 2022, and got eliminated at the 2022 WAFU U20 Zone B  tournament.

It was Ghana second straight defeat at the tournament which served as a qualifier for the CAF U20 Cup of Nations.

Burkina Faso took a 33rd minute lead through Moussa Ky but the Black Satellites leveled before half time through substitute Alex Sarfo.

But after Ghana bowed out of the tournament following a last minute winner from Abdul Rachid Zagre.

Ghana started the game the better of the two sides, dominating the early exchanges with Abdul Razak coming close with a ferocious free-kick.

Emmanuel Annor forced a save from Burkina Faso goalie Philippe Pare but halfway into the first half the Young Stallions started to seize control.

They took the lead after a brilliant work from the left, with Moussa Ky heading home.
