The Black Stars were close to getting to the breakthrough just two minutes after kickoff, but a brilliant save by goalkeeper Boison Wynney kept the Lone Stars in the game.
Ghana continued to dominate the match thoroughly afterwards, keeping the Liberian attack out of reach as they failed to register a single attempt on target.
Bournemouth star Antoine Semenyo failed to get the opener for the Black Stars in the 35th minute, having rounded off the goalkeeper after an amazing run from the center.
The Black Stars finally broke the game’s duck seven minutes after the interval after Nuamah found the back of the net with a superb strike.
West Ham new boy Kudus doubled the advantage for Ghana when he beat the goalkeeper with an excellent effort from close range after receiving a pass from Nuamah.
Substitute Jordan Ayew increased the tally for Ghana through a rebound before Divine Rosevelt Teah got the consolation for the Lone Stars in the closing stages of the game.
