The Black Stars have made their intent to annex a fifth continental trophy known by winning all their warm-up games ahead of the 2013 Afcon

Ghana fought from a 2-0 down to beat Tunisia 4-2 in a warm-up friendly at the Sheikh Zayed Sports City in Abu Dhabi on Sunday.

In a first half totally dominated by the Carthage Eagles, Issam Jemaa scored twice to hand the north Africans a 2-0 lead.

However, the tables turned in favour of the Black Stars after the interval. John Boye headed in what was a carbon copy of Agyemang-Badu's goal against Egypt just after the break to open Ghana's floodgate.

FC Porto starlet Christian Atsu Twasam walked through the opposition defence but was fouled inside the box. Espanyol's Mubarak Wakaso rifled a powerful shot into the top corner for the leveller.

A quick counter play between Jonathan Mensah and Albert Adomah released captain Asamoah Gyan, who calmly placed it into Aymen Mathlouthi's goal post to put the Black Stars ahead. With coach Kwesi Appiah's side in front, the true flamboyant nature of the four-time African champions' play was exposed to the opposition and spectators at the Sheikh Zayed Sports City.

Bristol City's Albert Adomah registered his first goal in the Ghana shirt after firing home from close range to put the final nail in the coffin for Ghana to end the game 2-4.
