GHANA SUFFER 2-3 LOSS TO COMOROS, CRASH OUT OF AFCON 2021

Ghana failed to make it through the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations group stage after losing 3-2 to Comoros on Tuesday.

The Black Stars required an out and out success and expected a great outcome in the other game among Morocco and Gabon.

Their plan started falling apart as early as the 3rd minute from a well taken strike by El Fardou Ben. Things went from bad to worse in the 25th minute after VAR judged captain, Andre Ayew’s foul on Comoros goalkeeper to be worth a red card.

Comoros doubled their lead in the 62nd minute through another fine strike that left goalkeeper, Joseph Wollacott helpless.

Ghana began a fight back in the 64th minute and drew the game level in the 77th, but lack of concentration was their undoing as they conceded, yet again, in the 85th finishing at 2-3 in favour of the debutants.

The four time winners end the group stage at the bottom of the table with just one point.
