Ghana striker Jordan Ayew could stake a claim for a starting role ahead of the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil following his peerless display against South Korea. 

The 22-year-old was the star of the show as he bagged a memorable hat-trick in Ghana’s convincing 4-0 win over sloppy South Korea on Monday night.

The Marseille striker replaced injured Majeed Waris as early as the fourth minutes and did not take long to make an impact as he gave the Black Stars the lead seven minutes later.

He went ahead to score two more goals with the other coming from the foot of captain Asamoah Gyan.

Jordan has not been a regular performer for the side but could now stake a claim for a starting role after impressing heavily in Miami.

The confidence of the third son of Ghana legend Abedi Pele has soared ahead of his debut appearance at the global showpiece and could be the man star for the Africans.

    If he can score goals why not,and I see him doing wonders at Brazil. The good this about our team it free scoring team anybody can score with any given chance.

    Asamoah Gyan has improved very well he is not wasteful like before and it good for the players he passes accurately and never dribble unnecessary .

    And what is good about the team is they are playing together ,each and every one understands the game plan except dauda who is catching the air and talking to himself.

    As for the midfield at the first half I understands them cos the Koreans plays ”what I call anti football” that is they will run and attack every player who get hold of the ball and it makes it difficult for an opponent if a team play like that but once they get tired they have nothing to offer that what transpired yesterday they got tired and Ghana out classed them.

    Adoma and dauda should be benched period we can’t do nothing good with them period.

    This is 21guns

    Don’t get it twisted
