Black Challenge win Amputee AFCON

Ghana’s Amputee National team, the Black Challenge, successfully defended their Amputee Africa Cup of Nations (AAFCON) trophy on Monday with a thrilling 2-1 victory over Morocco in the final match held in Cairo, Egypt.


The win marks a significant achievement for the team, who had previously claimed the trophy two years ago in Tanzania.

The match was a testament to the skill and determination of the Black Challenge, who entered the final as strong favourites. Despite their confidence, the Ghanaian team faced an early setback when Morocco took the lead, sending a wave of surprise through the stadium.

Undeterred by the early goal, the Black Challenge quickly regrouped and intensified their efforts. Their persistence paid off as they netted an equaliser, bringing the game back to level terms.

The decisive moment came when Mubarak Mohammed delivered a stunning thunderbolt goal, sealing the victory for Ghana.
