Thomas Partey scored a hat-trick





Ghana breathed fresh life into their World Cup qualifying campaign with an away 5-1 win over Congo on Tuesday.

With two games remaining in the qualifiers, the Black Stars remain third in the group with five points, two points behind group leaders Uganda, who will face second-placed Egypt later on Tuesday.

Atletico Madrid's Ghanaian midfielder Thomas Partey scored a hat-trick, while Richmond Boakye netted twice to give the Black Stars their first win in the World Cup qualifiers.

Congo's winger Lloyd Ayet scored the consolation goal for the hosts, who lie at the group bottom with a single point.

Ghana started their qualifying campaign with a frustrating goalless draw at home with Uganda before losing 2-0 to Egypt in Alexandria.

They also struggled against Congo at home last Friday after being held to a 1-1 draw by the Red Devils to lose seven points from nine.

Ghana are bidding for their fourth straight World Cup appearance.
