AFC Ajax fine and perfect preseason start continues after inflicting a 0-2 victory over Belgian giants Anderlecht at the Lotto Park in a club friendly in Brussels this evening.


The game started with the two Ghanaian interest spotted in a ball tussle after just two minutes from kick-off but Kudus Mohammed was penalised with Majeed Ashimeru winning a foul for the host.

Ajax with an early chance after Sebastien Haller had forced a mistake out of the Anderlecht backline to set up Kudus Mohammed for the opener but he fired wide for a restart.
The Ivorian forward- Sebastien Haller broke the deadlock on the 6th minute after connecting into the net from Dusan Tadic's accurate cross from the left to hand his side the lead.
Kudus Mohammed with a big opportunity to double their lead on the 20th minute having controlled a lovely flick from Haller but his shot went off the upright. Unlucky! 
However, Anderlecht was like they weren't the home side as they looked to be outplayed totally affecting the two Ghanaians in their attack, Majeed Ashimeru and Francis Amuzu
The former WAFA midfielder not having the best of game today as he's been made to start from the right flanks and subsequently deployed to the left in the last ten minutes of the first half, reason he's ghosted throughout.
Back from recess, manager Vincent Kompany made two quick substitutions to turn things, taking off the Ghanaian duo to bring on Lior Refaelov and Isaac Thelin.
Just ten minutes into the second department, Ajax made it 2-0 once again through their Ivorian hitman, Sebastien Haller on the 55th minute
Kudus Mohammed doing the usual in the second half holding onto possession and doing what he does best, ensuring he doesn't gifts and looses ball more often.
A scare on the 61st minute on the Right To Dream Academy graduate who picked a knock in an attempt to connect from a cross but colided with centre-back Wesley Hoedt resulting into a temporal hold up.
Subsequently, Erik Ten Haag to avoid any serious setback, pulled off the Ghanaian and replaced him with another youngster in Ar'jany Martha on the 66th minute.
The rest of the action was exhibited by the Lancers who looked more superior than their host, dominating every aspect of the throughout the entire game. 
Another good preseason exercise excercise for the Ghanaian trio of Kudus Mohammed, Majeed Ashimeru and Francis Amuzu- a Ghanaian born who represent Belgium internationally.
