Mohammed Kudus and Ernest Nuamah were on target for the second game running as the Black Stars produced a second half masterclass to beat Liberia in Accra on Tuesday.

The four-time African champions, who secured AFCON qualification after beating the Central African Republic last Thursday, began early preparations with a friendly against the Lone Stars.

Following a barren first half, Nuamah broke the deadlock after expertly finishing off a brilliant pass from Stephan Ambrosius just five minutes into the second half.

Moments later, Nuamah turned provider after sending in a fine cross which was nicely converted by Kudus.

Second-half substitute Jordan Ayew netted his 20th goal for the Black Stars after connecting to a Jonathan Sowah pass.

Late into the game, Divine Rosevelt Teah pulled one back for the visitors to crown an exciting game.

The Black Stars will re-assemble in October for friendlies against the United States of America and Mexico.

The 1982 champions are hoping to end a 42 year wait for the AFCON trophy by winning the 2023 tournament in Ivory Coast.

West Ham United midfielder, Mohammed Kudus scored a sensational free kick to draw Ghana level in their Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against the Central African Republic.

The visitors stunned the Black Stars after taking the lead through Louis Mafouta in the 25th minute, with Kudus called on to equalise two minutes before half-time.

Ghana struggled for the most part of the early exchanges but were seemingly awoken from their slumber after the CAR broke the qualifier's deadlock.
