Black Stars captain Andre Ayew has dedicated Ghana’s 2-0 win in the AFCON 2021 qualifier against Sudan to former President Jerry John Rawlings, who passed on earlier on matchday.

Jerry John Rawlings was confirmed dead on Thursday morning at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra.

The Swansea City forward was unstoppable in the game as he scored two goals – one in each half – to hand Ghana the victory.

He later on dedicated the win to the former statesman.

Speaking to the media after the game, Ayew said the players before the game wanted to win for the late president knowing his contribution to the growth of Ghana.

“I think we fought hard to get a win in honour of His Excellency J.J Rawlings. We know the history and his contribution to the growth of Ghana so the win is dedicated to him,” he said.

Dede also used the opportunity to send his condolences to the family of the late president.

“These are hard times for the family but we wish them well. May God comfort and bless them,” he added.
