Ghanaian duo Jordan Ayew and Rak Sakyi score as as Crystal Palace beat Millwall in friendly

Jordan Ayew and Jesurun Rak-Sakyi were on the score sheet for Crystal Palace as they defeated Millwall 5-4 in a pre-season friendly on Saturday afternoon.

The Ghanaian duo played instrumental roles as Patrick Vieira's side claimed their first win of pre-season in a frantic game with the Championship side.

Palace broke the deadlock through Eberechi Eze after three minutes, but Benik Afobe equalised for Millwall almost immediately.
