Ghana forward Jordan Ayew says he still has more years to play for the Black Stars despite making his 91st appearance for the national team.

The Crystal Palace man started the game as the captain on Thursday as they beat the Central African Republic to secure a 10th consecutive Africa Cup of Nations qualification.

His appearance also made him the fourth most capped Ghana international, surpassing John Paintsil.

Quizzed on how he felt after reaching that feat, Jordan said: “I don’t think about breaking more records with Ghana – I just think about still playing my football, enjoying my football and putting in performances.

“I’m surprised [to hear about 91 caps]. I didn’t even know. It is a proud moment, it’s an achievement and, you know, I’m still young and I have to keep going. I feel fit, I feel strong and I know that I still have more years to come.

“It’s a blessing I was able to start for the national team very early [in my career]. It’s a positive thing and I just want to thank all the managers that were here in the past and now.

“I really want to thank them for the confidence. I need to keep going because I have a lot of years ahead of me.”

Ayew made his debut for the Black Stars in 2010, 10 months after his professional debut.
