Ghana’ s Black Satellites failed to shine on Wednesday when they went 2-0 down to Senegal in Group B of the ongoing Africa U-20 Cup of Nations.
Two first half goals from Youssouph Badji at the Stade de Maradi in Niger were enough to give the Senegalese all three points.
The win sends Senegal through to the semi-final stage of the tournament and gives the side one of the four tickets to the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup to be staged in Poland.
Ghana next play Mali, who picked their first three points in a 1-0 win over Burkina Faso earlier on Wednesday.
That match will be played on Saturday.
While Ghana will need at least a draw from that match to qualify, the Malians will need a win at all cost.
Senegal will play Burkina Faso in a dead rubber.
