Ghana Wallop Lesotho 7-0
Two - goal hero Jordan Ayew takes on two Lesotho
markers o The Black Stars romped home to an
emphatic 7-0 victory over the Crocodiles of
Lesotho in a Group World Cup qualifier that was
nearly truncated by a blackout at the Baba Yara
Stadium in Kumasi.
On the night when the team was sparkling, the
floodlights sadly went dead after 54 minutes, not
from power outage at the stadium but from what
graphic.com.gh gathered was from a fault with the
Disgusting enough - there was no technical person
from the Electricity Company of Ghana ( ECG)
anywhere near the transformer when the floodlights
went off, and the stadium announcer was heard
calling on the company technicians wherever they
were to go to the transformer.
The match commissioner had to give the Ghanaian
football officials ample time to work on the
fault, and when the power was restored a number of
the fans had already left the stadium.
A brace each from Dominic Adiyia and Jordan Ayew,
and one apiece from Sulley Muntari, Christian Atsu
and Jerry Akaminko set a cracking pace for the
Stars as they seek a third straight qualification
to the World Cup.
Playing his first competitive match as head coach,
Akwasi Appiah was on track with his tactics in
front of a passionate crowd and the Ghanaian coach
savoured the victory by embracing his players one
after the other after the game.
Enjoying dominant possession, the Ghanaian created
a number of chances but it was not until the 16th
minute that they breached the opponents' defence
when skipper for the night Sulley Muntari scored a

Down, but the visitors refused to give in and
attempted to force their way into attack only to
meet a rocky Ghanaian defence.
Come back attacker, Dominic Adiyiah, atoned for
earlier misses when he turned Mokhehle Thapelo
inside just outside the area before unleashing a
pile driver for the second goal after 24 minutes.
Nerves took a better part of the Crocodiles and as
they wobbled the Ghanaians took advantage to fetch
the third goal through Jordan Ayew with a minute
left on the clock for the first half.
Not content with the score line, Ghana went on the
offence from recess and with the Lesotho defence
back-pedalling, Adiyiah fetched his second on the
Four minutes later the floodlights went off and
when power was restored, the electrifying pace
with which the Ghanaian played never diminished.
With a midfield well oiled by the presence of
Derick Boateng and Kwadwo Asamoah, Ghana stepped
up the pace completely taking charge on the wings
where most of the moves were initiated with
Harrison Afful on left side of defence and Inkoom
on the right back playing key roles.
Persistently the Black stars looked dangerous but
they were unable to focus their attacks.
Coach Appiah made some substitutions and that
brought some bite upfront with Portugal-based Atsu
thrilling the crowd with some suburb footwork.
The Black stars were getting more men behind the
ball and it came as no surprise when Atsu scored a
spectacular debut goal on the 86th minute.

Ghana went for the kill again with Jordan Ayew
scoring on the 90th minute while Akaminko
completed the rout two minutes into added time.
