Watch highlights of Ghana’s 4-3 win over CAR



The Black Stars came from a goal down to beat he Central African Republic 4-3 in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Monday, June 10, 2024.

Jordan Ayew’s hattrick and Fatawu Issahaku’s goal was enough to snatch the maximum three points for Ghana in the game.

It was a game of two halves for the four-time African champions, who needed a blazing second-half performance to make up for a stale, dreadful, and lackadaisical first half.

Jordan Ayew started the goal funfair just 3 minutes into the match with a composed finish from the spot.

The visitors showed resilience despite going down early in an intimidating and deafening atmosphere at Baba Yara Stadium and equalized in the 11th minute through Louis Mafouta.

Quick passing from the back and a delightful long ball from Kondogbia found Mafouta behind the defence, and the latter made no mistake by putting the ball at the back of the net.

Mafouta, in the final minutes of the half, silenced the home fans after he capitalized on a mishap in Ghana’s defence line to give the Wild Beasts the lead.

Ghana headed into the tunnel trailing by a goal, and the disappointed home fans booed the players on their way out of the pitch.

Otto Addo’s charges returned for the second half with guns blazing and took the game to CAR.

After missing a couple of chances, the Black Stars eventually found the equalizer through Jordan, who beautifully connected a gorgeous cross from Gideon Mensah in the 60th minute.

Two minutes later, Abdul Fatawu Isshaku finished off a lovely one-touch passing sequence to extend the lead with his effort from the edge of the box taking a deflection.

The Black Stars were in cruise control and added another in the 69th minute when Jordan scored from a rebound to complete his second hat-trick in his international career.
