The Nile Crocodiles of Sudan succumbed to the might of the Black Stars as the Ghanaians thumped them three-nil in their march for a fourth World Cup appearance. A brace from Asamoah Gyan, and an 89th minute dampener by the rejuvenated Sule Ali Muntari saw off the Sudanese challenge in the Group D qualifier for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
The Black Stars suffered an early set-back as defender Richard Kissi Boateng was sent off as early as the 27th minute when Ghana led by just a goal courtesy Asamoah Gyan’s 16th minute opener. The expulsion also handed the Sudanese a penalty opportunity to equalise.
But Gyan was on hand again to restore the Stars’ lead as he romped him his second in the 60th before Muntari finished of the challenge in Omdurman - Al Merreikh.
The win hands the Stars a group lead with 9 points while second-placed Zambia at 7 points have a game on hand.
