Player Ratings: AFCON 2017 qualifier: Ghana 1-0 Rwanda
Did not have a save to make and was largely untested throughout.
Did well to make himself involved in the match, putting in some strong tackles and contributing well going forward.
Did not offer enough going forward, failing to link up well with Ayew and join the attack.
Calm and composed at the back, commanding the defence with great authority.
Never put a foot wrong and did well to keep Rwanda forwards quiet and was not threatened too much at the back.
Cool as you would like in midfield, smothering Rwanda when they got in possession.
Strong with his delivery from set pieces, creating space with his piercing passing. Decisive in possession, and scored a fine free kick to give Ghana the hard-fought victory
Largely invisible up top, appearing fatigued and overcome by the injury which kept him out of the opening matches for his club side Bournemouth in the English Premier League.
Won countless free kicks for his side and was taken out hard by the Rwanda defenders. Won a freekick which was neatly converted by Wakaso late in the game
Richmond Boakye Yiadom
Largely anonymous in attack and did not offer much going forward when Ghana needed a goal.
Quiet showing from the hybrid midfield, who did not contribute much going forward but tracked back to support his defence.
Added some much needed energy for Ghana and provided a spark for Ghana after coming on.
Came on late and was not given much of a chance to have an impact.
