Many supporters of the Ghana national team have shared their dismay on social media about the Black Stars’ performance in the match against Walias on Friday.
Although Ghana had won 1-0 against Ethiopia in their 2022 World Cup opener, their fans weren’t impressed with their performance in Group G match in Cape Coast.
The hosts won narrowly in Cape Coast thanks to Mubarak Wakso’s goal in the first half of their qualifiers for the global showpiece.
The tournament quarter-finalists for 2010 were without Thomas Partey from Arsenal and Mohammed Kudus from Ajax on the day. This could have been a reason why they struggled to control the game in particular the second half.
The matchday two away against South Africa is on Monday and Ghanaians are clearly concerned by their team’s poor performance against Ethiopia.
He are some of their thought below:
Black Stars is useless without Asamoah Gyan.

The West Africans will try to return to the global tournament when the tournament takes place in the Asian country of Qatar next year.
CK Akonnor’s team will travel to South Africa to play on matchday two in Johannesburg on Monday in their attempt to qualify for the fourth World Cup qualification.
After missing the 2018 event in Russia, Ghana has set their sights on returning to the World Cup.
The Black Stars reached the world showpiece in Germany 2006 where they were first represented. They then went on to win the Round of 16.
They were awarded a qualification ticket for the South African 2010 edition. This campaign saw them reach the quarter-finals, where they were defeated by Uruguay.
They made their third consecutive appearance at the 2014 gathering, Brazil.
However, they were forced to leave the group stage for the first-time.
The Stars were defeated by Egypt in the 2018 race to Russia 2018.
