There is nobody within Ghana’s squad who is vilified quite like Jordan Ayew, but, on Sunday, the 25-year-old forward silenced his critics with a vengeance.

In the 63rd minute of the quarter-final fixture between Ghana and the Democratic Republic of Congo at the Africa Cup of Nations, Ayew scored his first goal of the tournament when the Black Stars needed it most, undoing one hour of intense goal-hunting from the Leopards with the calmest of finishes.

Ayew’s brother, Andre Ayew, later converted a penalty kick to give Ghana a 2-1 victory and punch the Black Stars’ ticket to the semi-finals.
