The Back Stars bounced back with Jordan Ayew connected a well taken cross from Gideon Mensah on the hour mark.

Issahaku scored two minutes later before Jordan Ayew cemented the victory with a rebound after Mohammed Kudus got his shot blocked.

The CAR pulled one back with a powerful strike from Mafouta.

The win means Ghana climb to top of Group I with nine points and maintains its dominance at the Baba Yara Stadium having only lost a World Cup qualifier.
