Black Stars captain Andre Ayew has dedicated Thursday’s 2-0 triumph over Sudan in the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier to Former President Jerry John Rawlings, who passed away in the morning of the match day.
Playing at home in Cape Coast, the Swansea City forward found the back of the net in either half to secure all three points for the Black Stars in the Group C matchweek three fixture.
Rawlings, who ruled Ghana democratically between 1993 and 2001, died aged 73 at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra after a short ailment.
“I think we fought hard to get a win in honour of His Excellency J.J Rawlings. We know the history and his contribution to the growth of Ghana so the win is dedicated to him,” Ayew said after the game.
“These are hard times for the family but we wish them well. May God comfort and bless them.”
“I think we need to try and defend as a team, stay compact and take our chances as it happened today.”
