Updates: Ghana 4-0 Sudan
Asamoah Gyan has shot the Black Stars into the lead in a crunch World Cup qualifier against Sudan at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
The Al Ain striker had an easy tap-in from close range after he was set up with a sumptous header by John Boye.
Mubarak Wakasu increased Ghana’s tally with a well taken shot just at the urge of the 18 yard box.
The Espanyol attacker wrapped his foot around the ball to connect an immaculate cross on the right from Harrison Afful. The Stars could have been up by a wider margin but Gyan’s set pieces have so far been wayward.
Majeed Waris early on forced a superb save from the Sudanese goal keeper Maghoub El Muz.
It has been a sublime combination between Gyan and Waris both of whom are leading the Ghana attack.
The Sudanese have hardly tested Fatau Dauda after almost 15 minutes into play.
Coach Akwasi Appiah has been forced to pull out Asamoah Gyan after the Al Ain striker had a muscle strain.
His absence has dealt a heavy blow to the Stars attack as the Sudanese press for an equaliser.
Warris in rare attack in the second half had what appeared to be a legitimate penalty but the referee surprisingly showed the Ghana striker a yellow card.
The diminutive made amends few minutes later as he soared above his marker to head home the third goal.
Its four now thanks to Agyemang Badu’s touch to a superb and selfless Warris cross.
