Ghana inflicted a 3-1 defeat on an improved Zimbabwe in a qualifier for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Cape Coast.
Ghana took an early lead from Muhammad Kudus, a deflected effort that made its way into the back of Washington Arubi’s network.
Zimbabwe improve but fail to score for long periods and go to rest behind.
After the break, Zimbabwe were awarded a penalty, which captain Knowledge Musona converted, slipping into the upper right corner, with the goalkeeper the wrong way.
Zimbabwe continued with the pressure and a spiral shot from Jordan Zemura hit the uppercut with the goalkeeper beaten.
For this they were punished when Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey put in a grounder from outside the box to put the hosts ahead in the 66th minute.
Zimbabwe knocked less after a slew of changes and the coffin nail was slammed into the proverbial coffin when Jordan Ayew headed in third from just outside the six-yard box.
What does it mean
Zimbabwe is at the bottom of the register with only one point. South Africa leads with seven. It is tense.
