Ghanaians react to Black Stars crucial victory over Ethiopia in Afcon qualifier

The Black Stars claimed all three points in the penultimate game against the Walias but their performance brought about mixed feelings among Ghanaians

Ghana moved to second position in Group F of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers with a 2-0 away win over Ethiopia in Addis Ababa on Sunday.

 

Two first-half goals from Crystal Palace striker Jordan Ayew were all what Kwesi Appiah's men needed to silence the home fans and improve their chances of qualification.

 

The 26-year-old, who was making a return to international duties after a year away, capitalised on a terrible offside trap set by Ethiopia's defence by the third minute to slot in the opener -- his 13th career goal for the Black Stars -- before doubling the advantage 23 minutes later through penalty.

 

However, Ethiopia dominated the second half leaving many to worry if the Black Stars would be able to defeat Kenya at home in the final game to book their place in the Afcon finals.
