Despite a missed penalty in the second half, Ghana had too much firepower against a resolute Niger defence as they booked a place in the last eight.
Ghana dominated the majority of the game, but were left frustrated for long periods by a determined Niger defence, and particularly by Niger goalkeeper Khaled Lawali, who  made a string of impressive saves. Ghana found the first goal on the stroke of half time as Eric Ayiah won a penalty after being fouled by Farouk Idrissa inside the...

After more than 400 appearances in the Premier League and another 124 with Czech Republic, one would think that Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech's hand-eye coordination is second to none.
Yet the 35-year-old remains as dedicated to his craft as ever, judging by a recent workout with teammate Matt Macey that he filmed and posted on Instagram.
With two machines spitting coloured table tennis balls from a metre away, Cech's task seemed simple -- catch each ball, sometimes two at once, and drop it in the...
