The Black Stars have advanced to the next stage of the 2017 AFCON after beating Mali in their second group match on Saturday.

Captain Asamoah Gyan recorded his 49th goal for Ghana after heading home from a Jordan Ayew cross in the 21st minute.

Aston Villa forward Jordan Ayew curved the ball into the box in the direction of Asamoah Gyan, who jumped and directed a bullet header from the centre of the box into the left side of the goal to beat Oumar Sissoko in post for Mali.

Ghana dominated the first half but failed to add to the tally, going into the break with the solitary goal.

The Malians came in strongly in the second half but the resolute Ghanaian defence and the excellent saves from Razak Braimah ensured that Ghana gets all three points in the game played in Port Gentil,Gabon.
