Felix Afena Gyan has netted his first international goal for Ghana as they lead Madagascar 2-0 in a 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying game on Wednesday.
The AS Roma forward connected to Gideon Mensah's ball to give Ghana a second goal at the Cape Coast Stadium.
It took the 19-year-old striker three games to score his debut goal for the four-time African champions.
Back from recess, Ajax attacking midfielder Mohammed Kudus opened the lead for the Black Stars in the 54th minute.
Two minutes later after Kudus’ strike, Afena-Gyan poked home from close range in the 56th minute to give the Black Stars a deserved cushion against the Barea at the Cape Coast Stadium.
Afena-Gyan was substituted in the 75th minute for Bristol City striker Antoine Semenyo.
He made his debut for Ghana against Nigeria in the 2022 World Cup playoffs back in March. The promising youngster played a role as the Black Stars booked a ticket to the global showpiece in Qatar.
