AFCON 2019: 'We Dominated Against Guinea Bissau', Says Black Stars Skipper Andre Ayew

Andre Dede Ayew says the Black Stars dominated against Guinea-Bissau during their 2-0 victory in the final match of Group F at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations.

Ghana needed to win their final group game to ensure their progression to the next round of 16 of the continental football fiesta after recording two successive draws.

Following a poor display of the first half, the four times African champions secured the needed three points courtesy goals from Jordan Ayew and Thomas Partey.

However, Ayew believes they managed the game in the best possible manner.

“I think the first half was good if you look at it in my perspective because Guinea-Bissau were fresh like us,” Ayew said after the match.

“It was a difficult game but we controlled it because we had the best chances. We could have scored and opened up in the first half but we stayed true to our game.”

“When you have a team like Ghana and our offensive power, as long as we don’t concede and stay tactically we can get a goal and that’s our strength and we’re sticking with that because we’ve have recorded two clean sheets.

“We need to keep working hard, and the fans should also keep supporting us and we’re going to give hundred percent,” Ayew deduced.

Ghana will engage the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia in the round of 16 stage.

The match is scheduled to come off on Monday, July 8.
