Two goals from Jordan Ayew was enough for the Black Stars to earn a vital away win over Ethiopia at the Addis Ababa Sports Stadium on Sunday, November 18.

The Crystal Palace attacker hit the back of the net as early as the 4th minute when he picked a pass from deep midfield, controlled it into the box before unleashing a diagonal shot into the net.

Jordan Ayew scored his second goal of the afternoon in the 24th minutes via the spot.

Jordan and his brother [Andre Ayew] combined beautifully before connecting the lurking Emmanuel Boateng who was brought down unjustifiably in the box for a penalty. Jordan Ayew stood behind the ball and sent the goalkeeper the wrong way.

The result means that the Black Stars now sit second on the Group F table with 6 points, just a point behind Kenya and now have a better chance of making it to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations to be staged in Cameroon.

The son of the soccer maestro [Abedi Pele] is experiencing such a turbulent season in the Premier League since joining Crystal Palace on transfer deadline day from relegated Swansea City Football Club as he is yet to sign his goal account in the EPL.

Jordan Ayew made his debut for the Black Stars on September 05 against Swaziland in an AFCON 2012 qualifier at the Somhlolo National Stadium in Lobamba where Ghana won 3-0.

Jordan [27yrs] scored his first and second international goals against Lesotho in a 2014 World Cup qualifying match at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi. His first ever hat-trick at the senior level came in Ghana’s 4-0 win over South Korea having come on as a substitute in the first half.

Jordan Ayew has scored fourteen [14] goals in 47 appearances for the Black Stars.
