ANDRE Ayew claimed the Man-of-the-Match award in Ghana’s 2-0 victory against Mali on Saturday.
The attacker put in an outstanding performance in the second half before scoring the second goal in Franceville.
“I am proud to pick up this award,” Andre said. “I want to thank the players and coach for helping me win this award. I dedicate this award to the whole team. I didn’t do it alone but had the help of my colleagues to win it.”
Ghana played an efficient game against a Seydou Keita-led Mali team to go top in Group D. The quarter final is now just a game away, with the final opponent to be played later: Guinea.
This is the second game in a row in which Ghana have won the award, after John Boye picked one against Botswana in the opener.
