Ghana’s amputee football team, the Black Challenge, secured the 2024 Amputee Africa Cup of Nations title with a thrilling 2-1 victory over Morocco in the final held in Cairo on Monday.

Despite an early setback, Ghana staged a remarkable comeback in the second half and extra time to clinch the win.

This victory marks their successful defense of the trophy, having previously won the title in 2021.

The Black Challenge also completed a double over Morocco within the past year, having defeated them by the same scoreline in September 2023 to win the inaugural African Para Games.

“We feel very proud. The God we trusted made it happen. We’re champions in Africa for the third time in the space of two years.

Despite the challenges we went through, we did it. It is a massive motivation to everybody that you might not have the support you need but you can go beyond the odds and make it happen,” said Stephen Richard Obeng, head coach of the Black Challenge, in an interview with 3Sports following the victory.

The team is scheduled to return to Ghana on Tuesday morning. With this win, they have secured a spot in the Amputee World Cup set to take place in 2026.

The Black Challenge’s triumph not only highlights their resilience and determination but also serves as an inspiration to many facing similar challenges.
