Ghana rallied from 2-0 down for a 4-2 win over Tunisia in their African Cup of Nations warm-up Sunday in Abu Dhabi.

The Black Stars came back from two goals by Issam Jemaa, scoring four times in the second half for their second confidence-boosting win following a 3-0 victory over Egypt last week.

Jemaa pounced on mistakes from Ghana's defense to score in the 16th and then just after halftime for 2-0.

Defender John Boye, Mubarak Wakaso, captain Asamoah Gyan and Albert Adomah all replied after the break for Ghana to turn the game on its head.


Boye headed home in the 56th, Wakaso scored from a penalty six minutes later, Gyan made it 3-2 on a counterattack and Adomah hit his first goal for Ghana four minutes from the end.
