Dede Ayew scores again for Swansea

Ghana forward, Andre Dede Ayew, was on target for Swansea City in their 2-0 home victory over Norwich City on Friday in the English Championship.

The 31-year-old broke the deadlock just before the break, Irish international Hourihane, doubled the lead three minutes into the second-half.

Andre went seven games without scoring before this game since last getting one back in December against QPR.

He says not scoring hasn’t disturbed him a lot, but it’s important to always score as an attacker.

“Leading from the front, it is always important to get goals,” he told the club’s website.

“It wasn’t something that disturbed me much because I was playing well and making the team score goals in different ways by my movement.

“I always want to score; that’s for sure, but what’s important is the team and what I’m going to do to help them score – it can be by scoring, by movement, assists.

“I’m happy to get the goal – it’s been a few games without a goal – but most importantly within that period, we were able to win games.

“I feel that we showed we can’t just rely on one or two players and everyone around can chip in with goals and everyone defends.”

The goal was Ayew’s 9th goal of the season registering 2 assists in 26 games.

Swansea City sit 2nd on the league log with 53 points after 27 league games.

Coach Ibrahim Tanko Applauds Coach Abdul Karim Zito for Winning U20 AFCON For Ghana

Ghana Black Stars B coach, Coach Ibrahim Tanko greeted fellow countryman Abdul Karim Zito for winning the U20 Africa Nations Cup with the Black Satellites on Saturday.

Zito challenged the chances of winning the tournament after beating Uganda’s favorites 2-0 in the final game.

Skipper Daniel Afriyie’s brace, hitting in every half, was all that Ghana needed to secure the all-important victory for the tournament winners to emerge.

The trophy will be the second for Karim Zito in two months, after leading the same side to win the U20 WAFU Championship in Benin in December.

Following the victory, Tanko took to social media to sing his colleague praises for the indelible achievement.

“This is a massive show of competence and a strong case of self believe,” he said.

“Winning two major trophies in three months is a confirmation of your competence and your knowledge of the game,” Tanko noted.

“As a colleague coach and a brother, I couldn’t have been much happier seeing you lift the flag of Ghana higher on such an important occasion. Congratulations Zito. You have made all of us proud. #OneGhana #U20Champions,” he added.

The trophy becomes Ghana’s 4th U20 AFCON title after previously winning it in 1993, 1999 and 2009.

Tanko was previously the assistant coach for the Black Stars before taking over as head coach of the U23.

He’s also had coaching stints in Cameroon with the Indomitable Lions and was on their bench during the 2014 World Cup staged in Brazil.

Despite the wonderful achievement of Zito and his boys, the opportunity to represent Ghana at the World Cup has been shut after FIFA called off the U20 World Cup due to rapid rise of the COVID-19 cases.
