Ghana wins Under 20 World Cup



Ghana's head coach Sellas Tetteh celebrates his side victory [AFP]Ghana beat Brazil in a penalty shootout to become the first African team to win the Under-20 World Cup.
The final finished 0-0 after extra time at Cairo International Stadium, and Ghana's Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu scored the winning penalty to make it 4-3 after Brazil's Maicon missed a chance to win it at 3-2.
Ghana defender Daniel Addo was sent off in the 37th minute for a late tackle on Alex Teixeira as he ran through midfield.
But Brazil wasted several chances and struggled to break down Ghana's tenacious defence.
After Brazil goalkeeper Rafael saved poor penalties from defenders Jonathan Mensah and Bright Addae, Maicon stepped up to the spot with a chance to give Brazil its fifth tournament win.
But Maicon hesitated and sent his shot high over.
Then Dominic Adiyiah buried his chance past Rafael, Alex Teixeira's kick was saved, and Agyemang-Badu struck home confidently.
Celebration
Ghana's players and staff streamed off the bench in wild scenes of jubilation, and as Agyemang-Badu peeled off his shirt and thumped his chest, Brazil's dejected players fell to the ground in disbelief.
Brazil had pressured early on, with Teixeira hitting a cross from Paulo Henrique over the crossbar, Dalton forcing a save from goalkeeper Daniel Agyei and Teixiera also testing Agyei after being set up by striker Alan Kardec.
Ghana was reduced to 10 men when Belgian referee Frank De Bleeckere showed Addo a straight red, even though his foul on Teixeira was late rather than malicious.
After the break, Brazil played short passes and made Ghana do the running, and Brazil almost scored when Giuliano's header bounced off a Ghana defender.
Kardec should have done better in the 58th when he headed Souza's cross straight into Agyei's arms, and shortly after the tall striker capped a sprint down the left by hitting a low shot into the side netting.Brazil's late charge
With Ghana's tired right flank becoming vulnerable, Brazil substitute Douglas Costa found Kardec with another cross, but Kardec headed over and Souza poked a shot wide as the favourites continued to squander chances.
Ghana defended stubbornly and with great determination, but the supply line to tournament top scorer Adiyiah was easily cut off by Brazil's midfield.
Ghana coach Sellas Tetteh then withdrew his other striker, Ransford Osei, midway through the second half to strengthen his midfield.Captain Andre Ayew lasted the whole match despite twisting his ankle days earlier in the semifinal against Hungary, and struck Ghana's first penalty in the shootout.
Agyei made a brilliant point-blank save from Brazil substitute Maicon in the first period of extra time, after a quick burst down the left from Costa.
His save from Teixeira in the shootout was even more crucial.
