[AFRICAN NATIONS CUP] Almost six years after he was waived out MLS, Junior Agogo emerged on the international stage, scoring the only goal in host Ghana's unconvincing 1-0 win over Namibia Thursday at the African Nations Cup in Accra.

Agogo, whose career has taken him to nine clubs in England, back-heeled the ball in from close range late in the first half to give the Black Stars their second win in two games. They rallied to beat Guinea, 2-1, in their opener on Sunday.

Namibia's defense had been dismissed as a bunch of "schoolkids" by its coach, Ari Schans, after a 5-1 loss to Morocco on Monday, but the Brave Warriors gave Ghana a scare.

"I cannot commend them highly enough," said Schans after the Ghana game.

In Thursday's other Group A match, Guinea remained alive with a 3-2 win over Morocco.

It was eventful game for Guinea's Pascal Feindouno, who scored twice and set up Ismael Bangoura for Guinea's third goal -- then got himself sent off in the 70th minute for retaliating after Moroccan Armine Ebate stomped on him foot.
