Andre Ayew scores first Black Stars goal at 2021 AFCON

Published on: 14 January 2022

Black Stars captain has scored Ghana's first goal at the ongoing 33rd Africa Cup of Nations against Gabon on Friday evening.

Andre Ayew was fed in midfield and turned perfectly to get away from a Gabon defender before hitting a straight shot into the net with the goalkeeper completely beaten.

Ghana will surely need to win the game tonight to boost the chance of moving to the next round.

Captain Ayew still has the patch over his eyes, he suffered a head injury against Morocco and did not train on Wednesday.

Andre Ayew, Daniel Kofi Kyereh, Jordan Ayew and Kamaldeen Sulemana are Ghana's attackers for the night.

Group C opponent Morocco earlier beat Comoros 2-0 to maintain their perfect start in the competition.
