Black Stars winger Jordan Ayew remains optimistic about his and Andre Ayew’s contributions to the Ghanaian national team, even as they approach the latter stages of their careers. Jordan, who will turn 32 in September, has represented his country 90 times since his debut in 2010. Meanwhile, Andre, who boasts an impressive record of over 100 caps for the Black Stars, will celebrate his 34th birthday in December.
In a recent interview with GTV Sports, Jordan expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to represent his nation, stating that it was a dream come true. Despite the inevitable passage of time, he emphasized that he and Andre still have more years ahead of them to contribute to the Black Stars. Jordan acknowledged the temporary nature of their football careers but emphasized the importance of enjoying the present moment.
Both Jordan and Andre have cemented their places among Ghana’s all-time appearance leaders, highlighting their invaluable contributions to the national team. They have had the privilege of playing together in two World Cup campaigns, including the most recent one in Qatar 2022. Furthermore, the Ayew brothers have shared the same jersey at club level on two occasions: first at Marseille and later at Swansea in 2018.
The bond between the two brothers is evident, as Jordan expressed his pleasure in playing alongside Andre. Their connection extends beyond the national team, as they have showcased their talents together for both Marseille and Swansea. A memorable moment occurred when Jordan scored in his second game for Marseille, with Andre responding by securing a hat trick for “The Olympians.”
As Jordan Ayew looks towards his 32nd birthday and Andre Ayew prepares for his 34th, both players remain committed to giving their best for the Black Stars. Their dedication and experience will continue to serve as valuable assets to the Ghanaian national team, leaving an indelible mark on their country’s footballing legacy.
