Must Read

Black Stars captain, Andre Dede Ayew, has apologised to Ghanaians on behalf of the team after failing to progress to the knockout stage of the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

The four-time African champions succumbed to a 3-2 loss to Comoros Islands in the final Group C game on Tuesday, January 18, 2022.

The result sends the team packing from the tournament in Cameroon with just a point after a winless campaign following a defeat in their opening game against Morocco and a draw against Gabon.

Expressing disappointment after the team exist, Dede Ayew who was sent off in the game against the debutant Comoros said, “We have to take criticism, apologise to the fans for not qualifying for the next round. We are disappointed because this is not Ghana”

“I think we need to learn from this, we need to go back to the drawing board as the players move ahead. I think if you guys know me, I live to fight another day. We are going to work hard and we are going to be back,” he assured.

This becomes the first time the Stars have crashed out of an AFCON without a single win and the first time they’ve exited at the group stage since 2006.
