Jordan Ayew improves Ghana's chances of qualifying for AFCON 2019.

Jordan Ayew's appearance since 2017 gave a victory win to the Ghana national team on Sunday afternoon as he struck twice in the first half of the Black Stars 2-0 victory over Ethiopia in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

The National team, carried points from the strikes of Crystal Palace striker Jordan Ayew. He's first was latching onto a pass, moving straight into the Ethiopian penalty area and beating the goalkeeper to a win. Ghana coach James Kwesi Appiah handed starting berths to Andre Ayew and his brother Jordan Ayew while Newcastle United star Christian Atsu joined Levante forward Emmanuel Boateng in attack. TSG Hoffenheim’s Kasim Nuhu partnered the experienced John Boye in central defence.

Jordan Ayew gave away a foul for swinging an arm in the face of an Ethiopian defender inside the 10th minute. Richard Ofori had to be alert on the 18th minute mark to stop a goal-bound effort from Omod Okwury and Emmanuel Boateng responded for a Ghana with a deflected against the body of hosts defence men. Ghana continued their superior dominance in the final third as Andre Ayew burst forward in awesome flamboyance to play through Boateng who was fouled inside the box on-rushing Mamo. Jordan Ayew elected himself and expertly dispatched the kick for his second goal of the afternoon.

Thomas Partey was sawed down by Addis Gidey in the middle on the 39th minute mark when he applied an artful technique to recover the ball for Ghana and Harrison Afful made a great clearance to keep Ghana 2-0 up inside the 41st minute after John Boye and Nuhu were beaten. The win boosts Black Stars qualification chances as they move to second in Group F, just a point behind leaders Kenya.
