Andre Ayew dedicates Ghana’s win over Sudan to late Jerry John Rawlings
Black Stars captain Andre Ayew has dedicated the 2-0 win over Sudan in a 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier to late Former President of Ghana, Jerry John Rawlings.
The former leader passed on at the nation’s premier hospital, the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital on Thursday, November 12, 2020, hours before the team battled the Falcons of Jediane at the Cape Coast stadium.
The Swansea City star, who stole the show with two stupendous strikes, has paid glowing tribute to the iconic and enigmatic former President.
He has dedicated the team’s win in honour of the former first gentleman of Ghana.
“I think we fought hard to get a win in honour of His Excellency J.J Rawlings. We know the history and his contribution to the growth of Ghana so the win is dedicated to him” Ayew said.
“These are hard times for the family but we wish them well. May God comfort and bless them.”
Former President Rawlings died at age 73.
