DEDE AYEW IS NOW GHANA’S MOST CAPPED PLAYER AFTER FEATURING IN THE 2-0 WIN OVER SWITZERLAND AHEAD OF QATAR 2022 WORLD CUP

Having led the Black Stars to a 2-0 victory against Switzerland in the final pre-World Cup friendly on Thursday, Ghana’s skipper Dede Ayew is now the Ghanaian player with the most appearances in the country’s history.

The 32-year-old made a strong impression as the four-time African champions defeated the European team to end strings of underwhelming performances and possibly win back the love of the fans back home in Ghana.

With 110 appearances, Ayew has surpassed legendary former striker Asamoah Gyan as the most-played Ghanaian player (109).

Ayew made his 100th appearance for Ghana in November 2021, scoring the only goal against South Africa in a crucial World Cup qualifying match in Cape Coast.

Historically, Ayew- who happens to be the son of the legendary Abedi Pele, three times African Footballer of the Year winner, made his debut for Ghana as a teenager in 2007 and has worked his way up to captain the four-time African champions.

Ayew has 23 goals to go along with his 106 appearances. With 10 goals, he is Ghana’s all-time leading scorer in the Africa Cup of Nations.
