|Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan struck his side's winner|
A brilliant cross by Jordan Ayew was well connected by the skipper to hand the Stars a second successive result at the competition.
“This is my 49th goal for the national team and for me this is a massive landmark. I am now only a goal away from my 50th for the national team and I hope to get that before the end of the tournament.
Gyan has now scored in six successive Africa Cup of Nations tournaments, having scored in Ghana 2008, Angola 2010, Gabon/Equatorial Guinea 2012, South Africa 2013, and Equatorial Guinea 2015.
“I am also happy to have now scored a goal in the last six Africa Cup on Nations as I am told this is the first ever time a player has done that, so I am proud about that as well. I hope to score more goals for Ghana and hope to continue playing for as long as I can for my country,” he disclosed to Class Sports’ Kwame Dwomoh-Agyemang.
