If you watched Ghana versus Ethiopia match that ended in a 5-0 thrashing of the Ethiopian team, you will have noticed Asamoah Gyan walked off the pitch with his armband.
The Black Stars captain walked off the pitch with the armband because Puma customized Gyan’s armband to commemorate his 50th goal for Ghana!
The 30-year-old nodded home his 50th goal in the 11th minute after finishing off a fine cross from Thomas Agyapong to give coach Kwasi Appiah’s side the lead.
The deadlock was broken by Asamoah Gyan, who headed home Thomas Agyepong’s cross – to make it 1-0 to Ghana ten minutes into the game.
It was soon 2-0 to Ghana five minutes later after John Boye controlled the ball beautifully, before beating Ethiopia goalkeeper Abel Mamo.
Holland-based midfielder Agyepong, who was making his international debut for Ghana, was looking lively for the home side.
The attacker showed some good skills in the 22nd minute, before unleashing a shot which was blocked and cleared away by Walia Ibex.
The Black Stars continued to pile pressure on the Walia Ibex defence as they looked to extend their lead and they did make it 3-0.
Ebenezer Ofori was the man who beat Mamo this time when his thunderous left-footed effort hit the back of the net five minutes before the halftime break.
Ghana were leading 3-0 during the halftime following an entertaining first half which was dominated by the home side.
The Black Stars continued to press Walia Ibex in the second half and they extended their lead through Raphael Dwamena, who was also making his debut for Ghana.
The bulky striker hit the back of the net from close range from a rebound – making it 4-0 to Ghana with the Ethiopia defence caught ball watching.
Dwamena then completed his brace on the hour-mark – scoring from close range after Mamo failed to hold onto the ball and the striker made it 5-0 to Ghana.
