Ghana midfielder Andre Ayew believes the Black Stars are a work-in-progress and yet to click into gear at the on-going Africa Cup of Nations.

The 22-year-old scored a beautiful goal in Ghana’s 2-0 win over Mali on Tuesday night in Franceville to enhance their quarter-final chances.

The Black Stars were ordinary in the first half and were lucky not to have conceded a goal when Tidiane Chieck’s free-kick twice came off the inside of the uprights.

But Stevanovic’s charges put up a stirred second half display to rattle in two goals with Asamoah Gyan scoring the first from a neatly curled free-kick.

Ayew, voted Man-of-the Match, says the improved performance against Mali will set the tone for going the long haul at the tournament.

“This performance has given us more confidence and given us more believe that we can even go further,” the Olympique Marseille ace told

“I even believe that we haven’t played 100 percent of our football. There’s so much more to do,” he added.

“Bit by bit we are climbing into the competition. We are getting better and better and I think that against Guinea we will prove that we are getting better.”

Ghana need a point in their final Group match on Wednesday against an exhilarating Guinea side in Franceville.
