Captain Andre Ayew honored on his 100th appearance for Ghana


Andre Ayew has been honoured on his 100th appearance for the Ghana national team.

The 31-year-old made his Black Stars debut in a friendly match against Senegal in August 2007 and has become a mainstay in the team for the past 14 years.

After being named in the Starting XI for the crucial 2022 World Cup qualifying match against South Africa in Cape Coast, Ayew officially played his 100th game for the national team.

To recognize the milestone, the Ghana Football Association presented Ayew with a plaque and a trophy before kick-off in Cape Coast.

The Al-Sadd forward is now second in the all-time appearances for Ghana, only behind Asamoah Gyan (109).

However, the Black Stars defeated South Africa by a lone goal to book a place in the playoffs of the 2022 World Cup.

Following a corner kick, Daniel Amartey was brought down during a tussle and the referee pointed to the spot.

On his 100th appearance, Ayew stepped up and sent the goalkeeper the wrong way for his 22nd goal for the Black Stars.

The result means Ghana join Mali, Senegal, Morocco, Egypt and DR Congo to the play-off stage of the World Cup qualifiers.
