2022 FIFA WCQ: Andre Ayew delighted to score as Ghana beat Zimbabwe to pile pressure on South Africa

Published on: 10 October 2021

Al Sadd forward, Andre Ayew has expressed his happiness after scoring for Ghana in their 3-1 win over Zimbabwe in the FIFA 2022 World Cup qualifier on Saturday.

The 31-year-old helped his side cruise to a comfortable victory on matchday three of the World Cup qualifiers at the Cape Coast stadium.

The result moves Ghana to six points from three matches after two wins and one defeat in the qualifying series.

"Great game but importantly massive three points. Time to recover and go again. Always a pleasure Black Stars," Ayew posted on his Twitter handle.


Knowing that group leaders South Africa had already won their match against Ethiopia, Ghana fought hard to secure the needed three points.

Kudus Mohammed scored in the opening five minutes to give Ghana a deserved lead.

Although Knowledge Musona would equalize from the spot to draw level for Zimbabwe, a Thomas Partey and Andre Ayew equalizer, later on, powered Ghana to secure a vital 3-1 win at the end of the 90 minutes.
