Their meeting is one of the tournament’s biggest pairings so far.
Asamoah Gyan 25-yard free kick cleared the wall and dipped just under the bar. It was a perfect free kick and the Black Stars had their breakthrough, leading to a choreographed goal celebration dance along the sideline.
Only 13 minutes later, Ghana was dancing again. This time the goal came from the right as Gyan’s backheel opened up just a bit of space for Andre Ayew, who cut in, then back out to clear the slightest bit of space for himself before firing towards the near post. Soumaila Diakite was beaten and Ghana had put the game to bed at 2-0 with under 15 minutes to go.
