England-based Sunderland striker, Asamoah "Baby Jet" Gyan and Udinese midfielder, Agyeman Badu have given Ghana’s Black Stars a two-goal cushion in their penultimate game against Swaziland, who are bottom of the four-team Group I table in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifying series played at the Accra Sports Stadium.

The deadly striker leapt gracefully and headed in from close range via a lovely Dominic Adiyiah cross in the 10minute.

Adiyiah is playing on the right wing position.

Agyeman Badu rifled home a shot from about 20 yards into the bottom corner of the Swazi goal in the 76th minute after a perfectly laid pass from Prince Tagoe.

Now with Turkish side Bursaspor, Prince Tagoe came on in the first half to replace the injured Asamoah Gyan.

Ghana had a goal disallowed in the 72 minute after Prince Tagoe was adjudged to be in an offside position.

John Pantsil is captaining the Black Stars for the first time in his international career.

The Leicester City man is deputizing in the absence of centre-back John Mensah who is injured.

Ghana sits top of the table with a better goal advantage ahead of Sudan.

Last September, Ghana routed the Swazis in front of their home fans at the Somholo Stadium with goals from Andre Ayew, Prince Tagoe and Hans Adu Sarpei.

The Southern Africans have let in 11 goals and scored only twice in four matches.

Ghana line-up: Adam Kwarasey, John Pantsil, Daniel Opare, Jonathan Mensah, Isaac Vorsah, Emmanuel Agyemang Badu, Dominic Adiyiah, Derek Boateng, Asamoah Gyan/Prince Tagoe, Sulley Muntari/Kwadwo Asamoah, Andre Ayew.
