The Asante Kotoko stalwart defender played as if he’s been part of the team from time immemorial with a breathtaking clearance that virtually secured a vital away points for the Black Stars.
Abdul Ganiu having gathered a lot of experience with the Porcupines Warriors partnered Nicholas Opoku in the heart of defence with a man of the match performance against a highly-rated South African side.
His impressive outing will spur him on in subsequent matches and has made a case for himself and other local players who made the match day squad.
Ganiu lasted the full 90 minutes of the game as the team maintains top spot with 10 points apiece with South Africa. However Ghana leads Group C with superior goals difference.
