Crystal Palace celebrates Jordan Ayew’s hat trick for Ghana

English club Crystal Palace has praised Jordan Ayew for his remarkable hat trick in Ghana’s 2026 World Cup qualifier against the Central African Republic on Monday night.

The 32-year-old forward netted his second international hat trick at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, significantly contributing to the Black Stars’ thrilling 4-3 victory in match day four of the qualifiers.

Crystal Palace acknowledged Ayew’s impressive performance on their official X page, expressing their pride with a post that read, “Jordan Ayew 👏👏👏 A hat-trick and a win,” accompanied by three applause emojis and a Ghana flag.

The Crystal Palace forward struck in the 6th, 60th, and 69th minutes to help Ghana secure the win and move to the top of the group in match four of the qualifiers.

Ayew’s first hat trick for Ghana came in a pre-World Cup friendly against South Korea in 2014.

Jordan Ayew entered the game as a sixth-minute substitute for the injured Majeed Waris in that friendly and immediately made an impact.

He found the back of the net just five minutes later, bundling in a cross from his brother Andre Ayew.

He added a long-range effort in the 53rd minute and completed his hat trick in the 89th minute with a poacher’s finish in the box.

This latest feat helped the four-time African champions secure their second consecutive win under Coach Otto Addo.

Ayew, with seven goals in his last five appearances for the Black Stars, continues to demonstrate his value as one of the team’s most experienced and reliable players.

He is currently the leading top scorer for Ghana with four goals in the qualifiers.
