Ghana secured a 2-0 win over Ethiopia in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at the Hawassa International Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
Crystal Palace striker Jordan Ayew netted a brace as Kwesi Appiah’s side won on the day to boast their qualification chances.
It was the 13th and 14th international goals in 47 appearances for the son of the legendary Abedi Pele.
The win boosts Black Stars qualification chances as they move to second in Group F, just a point behind leaders Kenya.
With CAF yet to make a final decision in regards to Sierra Leone (who have been banned by FIFA and therefore barred from playing the last three rounds of qualifiers) and their status in Group F, the Black Stars’ place at the 2019 finals is not fully confirmed.
But if and when CAF award 3-0 wins to Sierra Leone’s opponents for the three missing games (two of which were against Ghana), James Kwesi Appiah’s side will be mathematically guaranteed a place in the top two of the group, and therefore safely into the draw for Cameroon 2019.
