The Black Stars B on Tuesday triumphed 1-0 over Gambia in the 2019 Wafu Tourney in Senegal.

Striker Joseph Esso got the solitary goal for the Maxwell Konadu-led side, aiding the defending Champions to move to the Cup competition stage of the tournament.

A 66th minutes strike by the Hearts of Oak hitman turned to make the difference as the Gambians made efforts to equalise.

The Black Stars started strong and came close to the opening goal in the 10th minute when Joseph Esso unleashed a long-range thunderbolt, but his effort went narrowly wide of the target.
