Jordan Ayew made history on Thursday evening when he scored his 20th Premier League goal for Crystal Palace, becoming only the sixth player from the club to achieve this feat.

The Ghanaian striker found the back of the net with a powerful header in the 45th minute against Brighton & Hove Albion, giving his team a well-deserved lead. Although the match ended in a 1-1 draw, Ayew’s accomplishment was still a notable highlight.

Ayew’s goal was his fifth of the season, making him the second-highest scorer for Crystal Palace in the league this campaign. He sits behind Odsonne Édouard, who has six goals and assists to his name.

The 32-year-old forward has been in excellent form for the club, solidifying his position as Ghana’s all-time leading scorer in the Premier League.

Ayew’s impressive performance has not gone unnoticed, as he was recently named in Ghana’s provisional squad for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations. Barring any injuries, he is expected to feature prominently in the tournament, which takes place in Ivory Coast early next year. The Black Stars will face Cape Verde, Mozambique, and Egypt in the group stage, and Ayew’s experience and skill will undoubtedly be valuable assets for the team.
