Black Stars captain Andre Ayew has apologised to Ghanaian football fans for failing to qualify from the group stage to the round of 16 at the 2021 African cup of nations in Cameroon.
Andre Ayew after the game said; “I think we need to learn from this, we need to go back to the drawing board as the players move ahead.”
“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 if you guys know me, I leave to fight another day. We are going to work hard, and we are going to be back,” he added.
The West African powerhouse eliminated from the tournament after getting only a point from their 3 games in the group stage.
They lost their opening game by 1-0 to Morocco, draw 1-1 to Gabon, and lost 3-2 to Comoros.
This is the Comoros first time qualifying to the AFCON, and they lost their 2 group games against Morocco and Gabon without scoring a goal, but ended up by disgracing Ghana 3-2 in the last group c match.
And this was the first time the four times African champions have crashed out of an AFCON without a single win, and the first time they’ve exited at the group stage since 2006.
