FT: Swaziland 0-3 Ghana

Published on: 05 September 2010

Hans Adu-Sarpei scores his first international goal in the 81st minute as Ghana cruised to a 3-0 win over Swaziland in their opening 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

The new Schalke 04 signing joined the attack and profited from a poor clearance in the Swazi goal area and curled it neatly to score a rare goal.

Dede Ayew opened the scoring for Ghana on 13 minutes by  connecting Kwadwo Asamoah's cross from the left inside the box.

Prince Tagoe blasted from 19-yards to double Ghana's lead in the 69th minute.

The Hoffenheim forward was teed-up by Asamoah Gyan close to the penalty box and Tagoe powerful carpet shot to beat the Swaziland goalkeeper.

Before the break, Tagoe's header struck the cross-bar in the 44th minute and Kevin-Boateng rebound was cleared off the line by a Swazi defender.

On the stroke of the interval, unmarked Tagoe inside the box failed to connect a cross from the left but was disrupted by a Dede Ayew's phantom.

Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac handed Jordan Ayew is first cap as the 18-year-old replaced his brother and club mate Dede in the second half. Ghana starting line-up:

Richard Kingson, John Paintsil, Hans Sarpei, Lee Addy, Isaac Vorsah, Anthony Annan, Kevin-Prince Boateng, Dede Ayew, Kwadwo Asamoah, Prince Tagoe, Asamoah Gyan.
