THOMAS PARTEY APOLOGIZES TO GHANAIANS FOR BLACK STARS’ POOR PERFORMANCE AT AFCON 2022

After the Black Stars of Ghana lost their final group stage match to Comoros, Partey didn’t return to Ghana with the team but flew straight to London to join the ‘gunners’ as they prepared for a clash with Liverpool on Thursday night in the second semi-final leg of the EFL Cup.

A couple of hours after the game, several football lovers criticized him for running to London right after Ghana exited the AFCON 2022 and also putting up an abysmal performance including getting a red card in the Arsenal game.

Partey mentioned in his post that he wasn’t very happy with how things turned out in the AFCON for Ghana; and continued by saying he could have been more careful in the Arsenal game considering being booked already.

Well, let’s just make all these slide and give Partey another chance to prove himself for country and club and we know he’ll deliver, especially now that we’re preparing for the FIFA World Cup.

ARNOLD ASAMOAH BAIDOO SLAMS THOSE BLAMING DEDE AYEW AND ANAS OVER THE POOR PERFORMANCE OF THE BLACK STARS

Outstanding Entertainment critic and arts writer, Arnold Asamoah Baidoo has lashed out at those blaming the caption of the Black Stars, Dede Ayew and Anas over the poor performance of the Black Stars at the ongoing AFCON asking them to cut them some slack.

After Ghana got kicked out of the AFCON tournament, some people have been blaming captain Dede Ayew and Anas because of his expose and calling for the reinstatement of Asamoah Gyan as captain.

Arnold Asamoah Baidoo has a different opinion and has slammed those blaming others for what the players couldn’t do asking whether they want to normalize and justify corruption by glorifying Nyantakyi and blaming Anas for our woes.

To him, he doesn’t agree with others that Dede Ayew doesn’t deserve to captain the team looking at his commitment and undying love and neither is Anas to be blamed for our woes at this moment as he compares it to some past events like this.

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.
