Ghana, Libya survive late scares

Junior Agogo of Ghana
Agogo scored a brace for the Black Stars

Ghana survived a late onslaught by Lesotho to win 3-2 in the 2010 World Cup and Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

The Black Stars dominated most of the game going 3-0 up after Laryea Kingston opened his account after 15 minutes and Junior Agogo scored a brace.

But Lesotho scored two goals in injury time courtesy of Sello Muso and Lehlohonolo Seema.

Ghana maintain their position at the top of Group 5 with six points, while Lesotho are third.

Libya survived a late scare to secure a 1-0 win over Gabon in Group 5 of the 2010 World Cup and Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers on Saturday.

The north Africans sealed the win thanks to an awful own goal by Bruno Ecuele Manga in the 6th minute.

Manga clumsily took the ball over his own line after a Hesham Shaba cross that didn't seem any real threat.

The visitors emerged strongly after the break, setting up a frenetic second-half but the Libyans hung on for a hard-earned victory.

Libya are now second in the group with three points after two matches while Gabon, who have played one game, are bottom with no points.

Libya continue with their 2010 qualifiers next weekend when they travel to South Africa to face Lesotho while Ghana will play Gabon in Libreville.
