Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira commended Ghana striker Jordan Ayew’s performance in his team’s 3-2 defeat to West Ham United.

Ayew together with Ivory Coast forward Wilfried Zaha and Senegal midfielder Cheikhou Kouyaté will travel to the 33rd edition of the tournament in Cameroon which commences on January 9, 2022.
“It was the performance of the referee. I was really disappointed with the way the team has been treated on the field today,” Vieira said.
“This is Jordan. He has been working really hard, really well and he starts scoring goals and creating chances.
“Overall we had a really good performance. We played a team fifth in the table and gave a really good performance.
“We have to learn from the mistakes we are making and score goals when we are creating those chances.”
Ayew is expected to join his Black Stars teammates in Doha on Tuesday 4th December, 20222 ahead of the upcoming 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
