                            Ghana failed to open their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations campaign with a win as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Benin in Ismailia on Tuesday evening. 

Mickael Pote gave Benin a shock lead after two minutes but Black Stars captain Andre Ayew restored parity.

His younger brother Jordan fired Ghana ahead, but Pote earned the Squirrels a point after John Boye was dismissed for a second yellow card.

Here are Joy Sports player ratings:

Richard Ofori – 4.5

He could have prevented the second goal and didn’t seem to have control of his defence.

Andy Yiadom – 5.5

Looked very energetic on the right flank and offered width in attack but has to improve defensively.

Lumor Agbeyenu – 4.5

Struggled to keep up with Pote throughout the first half and was at fault for the first goal.

John Boye – 1

An unnecessary first yellow card. An even more unnecessary second yellow card. He cost Ghana the game. 

Kasim Nuhu – 5.5

Looked out of sorts parts of the game but he provided the assist for Jordan’s goal.

Mubarak Wakaso 5.5

A lot of misplaced forward passes from the Alaves man. However, he put in a shift and made more recoveries in the second half.

Thomas Partey – 5.5

Kept it simple and got more involved in the second half but a lot more is expected from him.

Thomas Agyepong – 3

Made a couple of driving runs early in the game but was forced off early due to injury.

Christian Atsu – 3.5

For a player of his calibre, he was expected to demand the ball more often and influence the game more. Unfortunately, not his best day.

Andre Ayew (c) – 6.5

Had a fantastic first half as he kept on finding spaces between the midfield and defence of Benin. In the second, the captain put in a shift and helped defensively.

Jordan Ayew - 7

Man of the match for Ghana. Worked hard for the first goal and scored a beautiful second goal for Ghana. He won a lot of free-kicks and slowed the game down for Ghana in the second half after going a man down.

Samuel Owusu – 2

The worst possible competitive debut for the winger but it was due to unfortunate circumstances as he only played for 24 minutes after coming on as a substitute.

Jonathan Mensah - 3

Calmed down the defence after his introduction but he almost gave away a goal in the dying minutes as he left Mounie unmarked.

Afriyie Acquah – N/A
