Black Stars forward, Antoine Semenyo, has begun his long-awaited vacation after starring in Ghana's World Cup qualifiers against Mali and the Central African Republic.

After a long campaign in the English Premier League, the AFC Bournemouth striker joined the Black Stars days after the campaign ended.

He joined his teammates for preparations for the two games, which Ghana eventually won to go joint-top of Group I of the 2026 World Cup qualifiers.

In photos and videos shared on social media, Semenyo joined his brother and friends in Malta to begin their holidays.

The striker was spotted jet-skiing off the beaches in Gozo while also visiting some famous and historic places.

The 24-year-old played a huge role as Ghana defeated Mali in Bamako on June 6, starting the match before he was later replaced by match-winner, Jordan Ayew.

He came off the bench to add some firepower to Ghana's attack as the Black Stars survived a thriller against the Central African Republic in Kumasi on June 10.

The English-born forward also enjoyed his best-ever campaign in the Premier League, scoring eight goals and delivering two assists, per Transfermarkt.

Semenyo names toughest EPL player

Sports Brief previously reported that Semenyo called Virgil Van Dijk the toughest player he faced after an impressive campaign in the Premier League.

The Ghanaian forward finished the season as AFC Bournemouth's second-highest scorer behind England international, Dominic Solanke.

The 24-year-old was reflecting on an impressive first full season in the Premier League after joining the Cherries from Bristol City in January last year.

Sports Brief also reported that Jordan Ayew scored a hat-trick for Ghana in their 4-3 comeback win over the Central African Republic at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

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

Ghana had made their early pressure count after Leicester City winger, Abdul Fatawu Issahku, was fouled in the box and the referee pointed to the spot for a penalty.
