Ghana put Ethiopia to the slaughter, beating the Walias 5-0 in their opening Group F game of the 2019 Afcon qualifiers on Sunday.
The Black Stars completed the opening half three goals up through captain Asamoah Gyan, John Boye and Ebenezer Ofori before rounding up a near complete performance at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.
Young striker Raphael Dwamena enjoyed a brace on his international debut.
Ghana started cautiously building up their play on the quite soggy pitch affected by early rains during warm-up.
Andre Ayew created first real threat up front in the 7th minute but he was fouled near the edge of the penalty area. His ensuing free-kick effort narrowly went past the goal post.
Ghana began to take control with their left flank with defender Lumor Agbenyenu and Thomas Agyepong combining well in search of the opening goal.
By the 9th minute, Gyan arrived with the first goal and his 50th in 102 international caps in the Black Stars shirt from another good run from Agyepong who laid a pass into the penalty area before the Dubai-based forward took a slide to head the ball off the body of an Ethiopian defender before crossing the line.
Centre-back John Boye produced a classic goal in the 15th minute as he took a sweet turn on the edge of the penalty area before lifting the ball past goalkeeper Abel Mamo for his 5th goal in 60 games for Ghana.
Midfielder Ebenezer Ofori made it three for the Black Stars on the 40th minute mark with a pile driver from about 40 yards out.
Three minutes into the second half, Raphael Dwamena scored with a simple tap-in to mark his first international goal on his debut. Ofori began the attack, spread it to Agyepong who cut back into the penalty area. Andre Ayew’s shot was blocked before the 21-year-old simply placed the ball into the net.
Dwamena, after exerting some pressure on the Ethiopian goalkeeper, grabbed his second from close range just a minute before the hour mark. Abel Mamo could not continue the game and had to be substituted by Jemal Tasew.
Ethiopia turned up more in the final minutes but failed to grab any consolation goal.
Ghana move top of Group F with four more goals than Sierra Leone who also defeated Kenya 2-1 on Saturday.
