Black Stars’ striker, Jordan Ayew, has conceded that the team was not good enough after exiting the AFCON 2021 group stages.
Jordan was a member of Ghana’s underwhelming frontline, which scored just one goal in their opening two matches against Morocco and Gabon.
The 10-man Black Stars team scored twice against Comoros in their final match, but their defense allowed three additional goals to seal their fate.
Jordan Ayew, who leaves Cameroon without a goal, stated following the game that the group stage exit served as a wake-up call for the young squad and an opportunity to learn.
“We were not good enough; we have a young squad; this is a wake-up call for everyone; if we don’t learn from this, I’m not sure,” he is quoted as saying by GTV Sports.
This was the first time in AFCON history that the Stars had exited without a single victory and the first time since 2006 that they had exited at the group stage.
