The Black Stars defeated South Africa 1-0 on Sunday night to secure a place in the play-offs, with Andre Ayew scoring from the penalty spot in the first half after the match referee awarded a spot-kick for what he perceived to be a foul in the box.

Leicester City defender Daniel Amartey appeared to go down following minimal contact after a set-piece, before Ghana's captain calmly found the back of the net from 12 yards.

Milovan Rajevac's side are one of six teams from the African continent that have booked a spot in the final round of qualifying, with Sadio Mane's Senegal already doing so in October.

The Lions of Teranga advanced to the play-offs with five victories from six matches, scoring an impressive 16 goals and conceding just four times, finishing off their group campaign with a 2-0 win over Congo.
