The Black Meteors defeated Hearts of Oak 1-0 in a friendly on Wednesday as they continue with their preparations for their AFCON U23 qualifier with Algeria.

The match was played at the Accra Sports Stadium in front of a modest crowd.

Ghana U23 side scored the only goal of the game in the 67th minute against the run of play after breaking through the offside trap with Akesse Akesse rounding Ben Mensah before slotting into an empty net.

Coach Ibrahim Tanko and his boys will now focus their attention to the double against the North Africans which comes off next month.
