Andre Ayew’s super display at the Cape Coast Stadium saw the Black Stars of Ghana beat the Falcons of Jediane of Sudan by two-goals to nil in a 2021 AFCON Qualifier.

Andre scored both goals from individual brilliance to put C. K Akonnor’s side in the driving seat in group C. The first from a free kick and the second from a super cut in and splashed it into the back of the net.

The Black Stars dominated the first half, but the Sudanese came back stronger in the second half until the second goal was scored.

The first chance for the Black Stars came in the 14th minute when Andre was set free inside the Sudanese penalty area but his shot missed out by meters and Jordan was stopped from reaching it.

Just before halftime, Andre was unlucky his second goal was not counted when he headed in from a Samuel Owusu cross because of a challenge on the Sudan goalkeeper.

The Falcons of Jediane started the second half on the better side and came close again through Yosuf Rahman in the 57th minute when his header just went frictions away from Ofori’s left post.

Nicolas opoku, who replaced debutant Christopher Nettey, made an imported intervention when he nodded over a cross from the Sudan right flank in the 70th minute to keep the score 1-0.

Andre missed one of the chances of the Black Stars had in the second half when he skied a cut-back from Caleb Ekuban in the 75th minute.

Andre Ayew scored a super goal in the 80th minute to put the game to bed. He picked a ball from just over the halfway line and dribbled past over three Sudanese defenders and struck a few yards outside the box.

Richard Ofori produced a nervous moment in the 89th when he originally mishandled a long-range shot and had to gather it the second time.

The game ended two-nil for Ghana at 90 minutes through Andre’s brace.

Ghana now has nine points and first in Group C, six points above South Africa, the second team in the group.

Ghana will travel to play the second leg in five days’ time at the Sudanese capital, Khartoum.
