  • The Ghana striker netted a belter in the game against Everton
  • Ayew has netted three times in the Premier League this season

Ghana forward, Jordan Ayew, scored a scorcher to open the scoring at Goodison Park as Crystal Palace began the post-Roy Hodgson era with a draw against Everton.

Hours before the game, the Eagles announced that Hodgson had left his role as manager of the club after falling ill during the week.

Patrick McCarthy took charge of the team for the Premier League trip to Merseyside on Monday night.

Following a barren first half, Ayew broke the deadlock in the 66th minute after sending in a powerful drive from outside the box, beating Jordan Pickford.

The Black Stars forward did not hesitate after Jean Phillippe Mateta guided the ball to his path, as spotted in a video shared on social media.

Everton pulled level with six minutes remaining after second-half substitute Amadou Onana scored moments after coming on.

The draw keeps Crystal Palace 15th on the table, four points adrift of the drop zone following a torrid period since the turn of the year.

The goal was Ayew's third of the campaign in 23 appearances for the South London club. He has also delivered five assists in the ongoing season, per Transfermarkt.

Meanwhile, Palace will be hoping to return to winning ways when they host Burnley on Saturday.

Ayew played all three games for the Black Stars at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Ayew scores a brace against Mozambique

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Black Stars forward, Jordan Ayew's brace was not enough as Ghana suffered elimination at the group stage of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.

The Crystal Palace striker scored at either side of half-time, but his goals were cancelled by Geny Catamo and Reinildo Mandava as Ghana shared the spoils with Mozambique in Abidjan during the tournament.

The Black Stars got off to a bright start after dominating the early exchanges, forcing the Mozambicans to make mistakes in their own half.
