Black Stars striker Jordan Ayew insists Ghana had a great game against Benin in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations on Tuesday, despite a draw.
Ayew, who set up his elder brother Andre for Ghana’s first goal before netting the second, maintains that he had wished the Black Stars defeated the Squirrels.
“It was a game with mixed feelings, we wanted to win but we had red card and things changed. We played well and I will also give credit to Benin, I think the fans enjoyed the game,” Ayew stated after the game.
“For me, the draw is like a win for us because we played with 10 men. It was an excellent game and we will work hard for the next game,” he assured.
Ghana will need a win against Cameroon on Saturday to be in pole position for a round of 16 berth in Group F.
