Ghana made it three wins out of three games in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers after beating Sudan 2-0 at the Cape Coast Stadium on Thursday.

A brace from captain Andre Ayew was enough to hand CK Akonnor his first competitive win as Black Stars coach.

Here is how we rated the players:

Ghana 2-0 Sudan: Black Stars players rated

Richard Ofori – 3/10

Looked jittery from the start and made a mistake in the first half which almost allowed Sudan an opportunity to equalise. He looked to have pulled a muscle in the second half but looked okay. He later fumbled a cross late on which could have handed Sudan a goal.

Christopher Nettey – 4/10

Started well but faded as the game wore on. Failed to also provide defensive cover for Djiku and Boye.

Baba Abdul Rahman – 3/10

Was barely involved in the game and looked a shadow of himself. Was exposed defensively and also didn’t utilise his strength of attacking down the wings.

Alexander Djiku – 5/10

Made some interceptions and looked strong at the back for the most parts. However, he looked a bit vulnerable sometimes due to a lack of communication.

John Boye – 5.5/10

Won all his aerial duels and also made some good tackles. Communication with Djiku will have to improve.

Afriyie Acquah – 5/10

Broke down the Sudan attack a number of times but wasn’t very convincing on the ball. Didn’t really progress the ball well and also made some bad decisions on the ball.

Emmanuel Lomotey – 4.5

Looked like a spectator for most part of the game due to poor positioning. Slowly grew into the game but decision making wasn’t the best.

Tariqe Fosu 6/10

The winger started the game very well demanding the ball most times. He also created a chance for Samuel Owusu in the first half and linked up well with Jordan and Andre.

Samuel Owusu 4.5/10

Was caught on the ball a number of times as his final output was below par on the day. Had a glorious chance to double Ghana’s lead in the first half but fluffed his lines.

Andre Ayew 7.5/10

A man of the match performance by the captain scoring both goals in the game. Was all over the pitch and worked tirelessly.

Jordan Ayew 5.5/10

Could have had a couple of goals had his positioning been better. He once again spent more time outside the box than in it and tried a fancy flick in front of goal when he could have been more decisive.

Substitutes

Caleb Ekuban – 4.5/10

Enjoyed 27 minutes of the game and was a constant threat with his runs behind. He was played through on goal but was denied after a last ditch tackle. The striker also set up a chance for Andre who skied his effort.

Nicholas Opoku – 3.5/10

Had to be used as an auxiliary right back after he came on for Nettey in the second half. Made one crucial clearance but distribution was poor.

Coach

CK Akonnor – 5/10

Had limited options as he had to make a lot of late changes to his squad due to medical reasons. The team pressed well but looked less cohesive upfront failing to really carve open the Sudanese defence.
