Guinea-Bissau 0 – 2 Ghana: Ghana knocks out Guinea-Bissau to advance AFCON last 16

Ghana played out a convincing 2-0 win against Guinea-Bissau at the Suez Stadium to qualify for the round of 16 of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

It was a goalless first half but Jordan Ayew puts the Black Star ahead in the 46th minute with a composed strike by beating his defender easily to give Ghana a 1-0 lead.

The Swansea City striker collected the ball from the left side and ran towards the goal as the defence backed off before picking out the corner of the net seconds after the restart.

Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey extended the lead in the 72nd minute of the game after he struck the ball from close range to get himself into the scoresheet.

Ghana top Group F with 5 points from 3 games and will now prepare for their upcoming match against Tunisia in Ismailia for a place in the quarterfinals.
