Kudus opened the scoring in the 53rd minute when he finished a low cross from Afena-Gyan. Three minutes later, the AS Roma forward recorded his debut international goal for Ghana with a flick after meeting a Gideon Mensah cross.

Bukari sealed victory with five minutes to the end of proceedings when he broke free from the Madagascar defenders before dribbling past goalkeeper Razakanirina Rakotohasimbola and slotting home.
