Ghana qualified to the final of the 2013 Wafu Nations Cup after beating Burkina Faso 2-1 in Kumasi on Monday.
The local Black Stars were on the verge of elimination and needed a win to remain in the tournament.
But Ghana's progress was aided by Sierra Leone’s 2-2 draw with Benin, who begun the day as leaders.
The hosts took the lead in the 20th minute when right-back Godfred Saka curled in a free-kick from the left flank.
The Aduana Stars defender delivered one of his trademark efforts and goalkeeper Mohammed Kabore was beaten.
Former Shooting Stars captain Lamin Suma becomes the first Sierra Leonean to move to an Estonian side when he signed for top flight league club FC Flora on Thursday.
The 22-year old who is the younger brother of Leone Stars left back Sheriff Suma has signed a two-year contract with multiple Estonian champions.
Suma told the club official website: "I am very happy for this opportunity to come here. Teammates are great, and I feel like home,”
He added: "I am a striker who can score goals. I can assure the fans that will help the team reach new heights."
