Ghanaian football fans have taken to social media to troll their Nigerian counterparts after beating the Central African Republic in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers.

The Black Stars produced an incredible performance to beat the Wild Beast at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium and go top of Group I in the qualifiers.

EFCC slowly moving like SARS. Super Eagles lost to Benin Republic. Finidi George trying to finish super eagles. NLC scheduling another strike for tomorrow which means National Grid may collapse. Maintaining composure in Nigeria is hard.

Ayew scores hat-trick as Ghana beat CAR

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Jordan Ayew scored a hat-trick to boost Ghana's 2026 World Cup qualification hopes as the team recovered from 2-1 to beat the Central African Republic 4-3 at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

Louis Mafouta's first-half brace handed the Black Stars a scare before the break but a strong display from Ghana in the second-half earned them a deserved victory.

In a quick start to the game, the Black Stars made their early pressure count after Leicester City winger Abdul Fatawu Issahku drew a foul in the box and the referee pointed to the spot for a penalty.
