Blackstars of Ghana failed to pick up all three points in their opening game at the 2019 African Cup of Nations.
The team threw away a first half lead to draw with the Squirrels of Benin in Ismaily.
Blackstars of Ghana recovered from an early minute goal by Pote of Benin to lead 2-1 at halftime with goals from Andre Dede Ayew and Jordan Ayew.
5 minutes in the 2nd half, John Boye bizarrely got himself sent off with a 2nd yellow card for time wasting.
