Ghana were held to a 1-1 draw by the Central Africa Republic (CAR) in a Group E match at the Estádio 11 de Novembro, Luanda in Angola.

Karl Namnganda cancelled out Mohammed Kudus’ opening goal and the Black Stars of Ghana remained at the top of the group standings.

Sunday’s game was the 70th cap for Mensah with the Black Stars and since his debut in 2009, the defender has been an important piece for Ghana.
