Ghana returned to goalscoring form as they opened their 2019 African Nations Cup Group F qualification campaign on Sunday with a crushing 5-0 home success over Ethiopia in Kumasi.

Debutant Raphael Dwamena, who played this past season in the Swiss second-tier with FC Zurich, bagged a second half brace after veteran forward Asamoah Gyan had given the home side the lead with his 50th national team goal.

The Black Stars' other strikes came from Turkey-based defender John Boye and 21-year-old Ebenezer...

New boys, Gyan help Black Stars to perfect start
