2026 WCQ: Jordan Ayew late winner as Ghana defeat Mali in Bamako

The Black Stars of Ghana boosted their 2026 Fifa World Cup qualifying campaign with a 2-1 come-from-behind victory away to Mali Thursday night.

Jordan Ayew’s winner in the ending moments of the encounter bagged the four-time campaigners’ second win in Group I after three games.

The Black Stars conceded in the 45th minute of the game through Doumbia. Alexander Djiku’s clearance in the box deflected off the forward as the ball bounced into Ghana’s goal.

In massive retaliation after the halftime break, Otto Addo’s charges improved upfront and levelled with Ernest Nuamah’s header in the 58th minute from Samed Salis’ cross from the right wing.

Ghana held on for a point as the Malians surged forward countless times and left gaps in defence.

And as a result, the Black Stars picked the winner in the 94th minute of additional time with Jordan Ayew’s strike in the 18-yard box.

Ghana plays the Central African Republic in their next game – at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Monday, June 10, 2024. Kickoff is 19:00 GMT.
