Ghana thrash Saudi Arabia in Jeddah

Ghana defeated Saudi Arabia 3-0 in an international friendly played in Jeddah on Tuesday evening.

Young Boys Bern defender Kasim Adams Nuhu scored first for Ghana before defender Hassan Haswani scored an own-goal from a Thomas Partey’s searching pass.

The Atletico Madrid man iced the win for the West African giants with an 89th minute finish to highlight his superior form for club and country.

Coach Kwesi Appiah’s new men came to the party by impressing to clinch victory after failing to book a place at the World Cup.

Debutant Kassim Nuhu got off to a perfect start in the Black Stars shirt by scoring Ghana’s first with a cool tap in after a cross from Ebenezer Ofori.

Saudi Arabia skipper Osama Hawsawi made it 2-0 after 68 minutes after putting the ball in his own net following a cross from Thomas Partey.

Partey himself got on the scores sheet with a thunderbolt striker in the box to help Ghana record a resounding victory
