Jordan Ayew, a Ghanaian international, scored for Crystal Palace in Wednesday’s 2-2 draw with Southampton in the English Premier League.
The striker had not scored for several months in the English Premier League. This left Ghanaians anxious ahead of the 2021 Total Energies Africa Cup of Nations tournament (AFCON).
Today, December 15, at Selhurst Park, Jordan Ayew, who began the match, scored in the second period to force the match into a 2-2 draw at 90 minutes.
Southampton was ahead 2-1 in the second half thanks to goals by James Ward-Prowse, Armando Broja and Armando Perez before Jordan goal.
Today’s goal marks the end of a 44-match streak in all competitions that Jordan Ayew has played without scoring a goal.
This strike will likely give the player a huge confidence boost, especially in the context of the upcoming 2021 AFCON.
