AFRICA won its first Olympic football medal yesterday as Isaac Asare's goal from a free-kick after 18 minutes gave Ghana a 1-0 victory over Australia in the bronze-medal match played in an almost deserted Nou Camp. In an ill-tempered game, Ghana's substitute Shamo Quaye was sent off and Nii Lamptey was booked, while for Australia Shaun Murphy went off with a bloodied nose and Paul Okon missed a penalty.
