The Black Stars of Ghana have qualified to the next stage of the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt after beating Guinea-Bissau by two goals to nil.

Jordan Ayew and Thomas Partey scored for the Black Stars to advance to the next stage of the competition after a stuttering opening to their AFCON campaign.

Ghana will meet the second placed team in Group E which is yet to be decided.

Ghana are one of the favourites to win the Africa Cup of Nations, having lifted the title on four previous occasions, but got off to a slow start in Egypt.
