Ghana maintained the perfect start of the 2021 African Cup of Nations [Afcon] against Sudan at the Cape Coast Stadium on Thursday afternoon.
The Black Stars’ preparations ahead of the game were hit with confusion after some players failed to show up due to restrictions from clubs and Covid-19 related issues, making it difficult for C.K. Akonnor to assemble the best team.
However, captain of the side, Andre Ayew scored a brace on his 91st appearance for the Black Stars.
The Swansea City broke the deadlock with a stunning freekick on 18th minute of the game.
Sudan then came close through danger man Mohammed Abdel Rahman, but John Boye stopped him on a one on one situation before he threatened again with an effort inches wide.
Ghana nearly doubled the lead at the half-hour mark after Tariqe Fosu weaved in a pass to Samuel Owusu who was denied by a strong save from Sudan goalie Ali Abdallah.
Just before half time, Andre Ayew had a goal ruled out by Senegalese referee Maguette Ndiaye.
