Jordan Ayew

Jordan Ayew scored his first goal of the season on Saturday as he netted in Crystal Palace’s impressive 4-1 win over Leeds United in the Premier League.

The Black Stars striker scored the fourth goal after Eberechi Eze, Scott Dann and an own goal by Hélder Costa had set Palace on the path to victory.

In the 70th minute, Zaha set-up Ayew with a ball across the penalty box, expertly bypassing several Leeds players, to allow his strike partner to calmly tuck away and seal the three points for Hodgson’s excellent Eagles.

The goal is Jordan’s first in what has been a frustrating season thus far.

Jordan was ruled out of action for two weeks after contracting coronavirus last month.

Black Stars coach Charles Akonnor would be happy his striker has scored a week to the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifying double-header against Sudan.

Jordan is expected to the lead Akonnor’s attack in the two games, which should the Black Stars record victories will all but qualify for the tournament.

Black Stars will face Sudan on November 12 in Cape Coast and play the North Africans five days later in Khartoum.
