SYNOPSIS: Liberia kicks off in their Olympic elimination soccer match against Ghana on Sunday. The match was played at the Accra Sports Stadium in Ghana before a packed crowd.
The Ghana Black Stars, in the white jerseys and shorts, were quickly into the attack and scored their first goal through the acting captain, Kwasi Owusu. The goal came only two minutes after the start of play.
Most of the Liberian attacking moves were made in the first half but they were unable to breach the Ghanian defence. Ghana led one-nil at half time and were to increase their lead soon after two second half started.
Ghana, now running from right to left, made another brilliant attacking move which ended with Owusu scoring his second goal. He limped off the field soon after scoring the goal and was replaced.
From this point on it was one way traffic with the Ghanaians piling on four more goals before the match ended. Dan Owusu scored this one before he too was replaced. Ghana by now was running almost a will through the Liberian defence and Robert Hammond scored the fourth goal. Ghana ran out winners by six goals to nil.
