In characteristic fashion, the winger moved majestically and dummied before slotting the ball home, leaving the Mozambican goalkeeper rooted to his spot.

Later in the second half, Jordan added a second in the 70th minute, also from a spotkick. The Black Stars had been awarded a second penalty after Mozambique's Renildo blocked Mohammed Kudus' shot with his hand in the 18-yard box.

Mozambique shocks Ghana in injury time

While the Black Stars looked to be cruising to their first victory in the tournament, Mozambique shocked them with two quick goals in time added on.

Geny Camato converted a penalty in the first minute of injury time (90+1) after Ghana's captain, Dede Ayew, handled the ball in the penalty area.

Moments later, Renildo redeemed himself by heading in from a corner to atone for the penalty he had earlier caused.
