Jordan Ayew's free header in the 60th minute brought the game back to level terms. Fatawu Issahaku's strike deflected off the opponent's defender into the net, helping Ghana regain the lead.

The Crystal Palace forward scored nine minutes after his second goal of the night to complement Ghana's victory.

According to sports analyst Owuraku Ampofo, the hat-trick is Jordan Ayew's second in his career. The last time he scored a hat-trick was in 2014 during a pre-2014 World Cup qualifier against South Korea.

Jordan Ayew's hat-trick also happens to be Ghana's first since 2017. These statistics tie into the Black Stars' gradual resurgence since Otto Addo took over as head coach.
