Ghana striker Jordan Ayew has played down his heroics despite scoring the goals in the 2-0 win over Ethiopia on Sunday to boost their qualification chances.
The Crystal Palace forward opened the scoring as early as the third minute when he slotted a low one past the Walias goalkeeper in Ghana's first attacking move.
In the 26th minute he converted a beautiful penalty to double the lead after Emmanuel Boateng was whacked down inside the box.
''First of all I’m happy because we’ve qualified. Secondly because I scored two goals and I can say if not because of my team-mates wouldn’t have had the opportunity to score two goals. I’m just enjoying the moment in the qualification and I’m grateful as well,'' Ayew is quoted by Ghana Sports Online.
