Black Stars deputy skipper Andre Ayew has lauded his colleagues for their impressive display in their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Sunday.

Ghana defeated Ethiopia 2-0 at the Addis Ababa Stadium on Sunday, a result that puts them in good position to make another Africa Cup of Nations.

Jordan Ayew controlled a long pass from defender Harrison Afful before finding the back of the net with a fine strike from close range.

He doubled the lead before the half-hour mark via penalty spot after Emmanuel Boateng was fouled in the box by Ethiopian goalkeeper.

Andre Ayew who captained the team on the day expressed delight with the result and praised his teammates as well as the technical team for the victory.

"Very good result for us because the game was very difficult but we managed to pull it off thanks to my colleagues, our coach and the technical staff," he said

"We just have to build on this and make sure we put up a better performance than what we did today but we are happy with the victory."
