A preparatory game for an AFCON qualifier turned into a demolition exercise for the Black Stars as they smashed Asokwa Deportivo 6-1 at the Baba Yara stadium.

A brace each from Raphael Dwamena and Majeed Waris as well as a goal each from Frank Acheampong and Jordan Ayew ensured the team run riot over the Division One side.

The whole set changed at halftime and the team stood as:

However, Deportivo halved the deficit two minutes into the second and that served as a catalyst for more goals for the Black Stars as Majeed Waris and Raphael Dwamena, who could make his Ghana debut, grabbed a brace each.
