They had to complete the match in a mostly empty stadium, however, after the match was held up for over half an hour by disturbances in the stands. The bulk of the crowd was escorted from the stadium after fans of the host nation began pelting Ghana's players with projectiles after they had built an unassailable lead in the semi-final.
Gabonese referee Eric Otogo-Castane stopped play in the 82nd minute and the Ghanaian players congregated for safety behind one of the goals before the game finally resumed.
Andrew Ayew scored twice for Ghana and Wakaso Mubarak was also on target while Atsu again completed the full 90 minutes for the Black Stars.

That is of course if he shows as much desire as he did for Ghana. He showed real pace and excellent decision-making and passing ability on quite a few occasions.
Looking forward to him coming back.

I jest, of course!

An excellent pass from him drew a foul on a player for the first penalty, and he broke forward and showed good vision and pass to set up the second.

Basically, he looked a decent enough player and nothing like the tiny rabbit caught in the headlights he's appeared to be on his limited appearances for us (he actually looked bigger for them). All very confusing really.
