The Black Galaxies of Ghana will take on Niger Republic in the quarter-finals of the 2022 Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) on Saturday.

The quarter-final pairing was established after Niger Republic stunned Cameroon 1-0 in their last Group E game played on Tuesday.

Cameroon only needed a draw against Niger to progress into the last eight, after opening their campaign with a 1-0 win against Congo Brazzaville in their three-team group. But Ousseini Badamassi scored in the 69th minute to send Niger into the quarter-finals where they will face the Black Galaxies on Saturday.

If the Black Galaxies defeat Niger in the last eight, they will engage hosts Algeria or Côte d’Ivoire in the semi-finals.
