    Default Swaziland v Ghana highlights



    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
    .


    Ghana’s Black Stars thrashed a rough Swaziland side 3-0 to start their 2012 Nations Cup campaign.

    The Swazis started the game very well- robust in defense and midfield- but were short of experience upfront. They kept the Stars quiet for the first 10 minutes of the game.

    The Black Stars later got into the game and played more attacking football.

    Their efforts eventually paid off when Dede Ayew, who was very impressive in the game, opened the scoring for Ghana on 13th minute by connecting Kwadwo Asamoah’s cross from the left.

    Prince Tagoe, who had been under attack from Ghanaian fans and the media, for not performing well in the just ended 2010 Fifa World Cup, found his scoring boots when he struck a superb shot from 19-yards to double Ghana’s lead in the second half.

    Ghana made the first change by bringing Agyeman Badu to replace limping Kelvin Prince Boateng in the 63rd minute.

    Jordan Ayew also made his first debut for Ghana when he replaced his brother and play mate at Oympique Marseille, Dede Ayew in the 73rd minute.

    Prince Tagoe nearly scored a third goal for Ghana in the 67th minute when Asamoah Gyan laid a pass to him in the 18 yard box but he wasted it by shooting over the post.

    Hans Adu-Sarpei scored the third goal in the 81st minute as Ghana sealed a 3-0 win over Swaziland in the 2012 Africa Cup of Nation qualifier.

    The goal was scored from a poor clearance in the Swaziland goal area which eventually fell in front of him and curled it neatly to score a goal.

    In the 85th minute, the coach substituted Asamoah Gyan for Samuel Inkoom.

    In what seems to be a typical 4-4-2 formation, Rajevac paired Asamoah Gyan and Prince Tagoe in attack, supported in midfield by Kevin Prince Boateng, Andre Ayew, Kwadwo Asamoah and Anthony Annan.

    In post was Blackpool’s new signing Richard Kingson who relinquished his captain’s arm band to John Paintsil at the right side of defence.

    In the heart of defence were Isaac Vorsah and Lee Addy whilst Hans Adu Sarpei was at his usual left back position.
