Meet Jordan Ayew: Ghana's decisive goalscorer

Jordan Pierre Ayew is currently in exceptional form, having scored decisive goals in Ghana's last two 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, revitalising the Black Stars' campaign.


 His recent hat-trick against the Central African Republic marked his eighth goal in the past five matches, bringing his international tally to 28 goals in 104 appearances. 

Notably, Ayew's hat-tricks for Ghana have come exactly a decade apart, with his first against South Korea on June 9, 2014, and the latest in Kumasi on June 10, 2024.

The Crystal Palace forward now stands as the third Ghanaian to earn over 100 caps, joining the ranks of Asamoah Gyan (109 caps, 51 goals) and his elder brother, André Ayew (118 caps, 24 goals).
