World Cup 2026: Ghana triumphs in seven-goal thriller, Burkina Faso drops points in draw


The Black Stars of Ghana continued their impressive form in the FIFA World Cup qualifiers with a thrilling 4-3 victory over the Central African Republic in Kumasi on Monday, 10 June. Meanwhile, Burkina Faso’s Stallions were left frustrated after being held to a 2-2 draw by Sierra Leone in a match played in Bamako, Mali.

Ghana 4 – 3 Central African Republic

In a match that will go down as one of the most dramatic encounters in Kumasi’s history, the Black Stars emerged victorious in a high-scoring thriller against the Central African Republic. Fresh off a dramatic comeback win over Mali in Bamako last week, Ghana showcased their resilience once again.

Jordan Ayew was the star of the night, continuing his excellent form with a hat-trick that propelled Ghana to victory. His crucial contributions ensured that Ghana walked away with all three points, keeping their World Cup hopes alive. The win solidifies Ghana’s position in Group I, with the Black Stars proving they can handle high-pressure situations with aplomb.

Burkina Faso 2 – 2 Sierra Leone

Burkina Faso’s Stallions will rue their missed opportunity to close the gap on Group A leaders Egypt after a disappointing draw against Sierra Leone. Despite taking a commanding two-goal lead before halftime, lapses in concentration allowed Sierra Leone to claw their way back into the match.

The Stallions’ inability to maintain their lead resulted in a 2-2 draw, a result that leaves them trailing behind Egypt. The dropped points could prove costly as the qualifiers progress, highlighting the importance of maintaining focus and composure throughout the entire match.

Guinea 0 – 1 Mozambique

In another dramatic encounter in Group G, Mozambique stunned Guinea with a narrow 1-0 victory. Geny Catamo’s late strike handed Mozambique all three points, leaving them tied on nine points with Algeria, who hold a better goal difference. This win breathes new life into Mozambique’s qualifying campaign, showing that they are serious contenders for a spot in the 2026 World Cup.

These results have added further excitement to the World Cup qualifiers, with teams battling fiercely for a place in the prestigious tournament.

Ghana’s dramatic win and Burkina Faso’s missed opportunity highlight the unpredictable nature of the qualifiers, promising more thrilling matches in the coming weeks.
