Striker Jordan Ayew scored twice as the Black Stars thumped second tier side Asokwa Deportivo 4-0 in a friendly in Kumasi on Tuesday. Captain Sulley Muntari bossed the midfield as the Black Stars prepared for Friday’s 2014 World Cup qualifier against Lesotho.
The AC Milan midfielder fired the Black Stars into the lead with a pile driver from 25 yards after turning his marker inside out.Ayew doubled the Black Stars’ lead by converting a penalty after striker Dominic Adiyiah was brought down in the box. Adiyiah made it 3-0 with a simple tap-in after Samuel Inkoom did the hard work on the right and fired but the goalkeeper failed to hold at the first attempt on the soggy pitch.
Ayew completed the rout after controlling Muntari’s long-range pass before angling in the ball from the edge of the box. It was their second trial match of the day after beating State Envoys 3-0 earlier in the day.
