Ghana forward Jordan Ayew explained the reason behind Black Stars’ early exit in the 2021 Africa Cup of nations (AFCON) after the 2-3 loss to Comoros on Tuesday.
The Crystal Palace failed to score a goal in the AFCON 2021 with his last goal in the Africa Cup of nations dating back to July 2, 2019 during a 2-0 win over Guinea Bissau in the AFCON 2019 with Black Stars being knocked out in the round of 16 by Tunisia (1-1, 4-5 on penalties).
Speaking after the unexpected loss to debutants Comoros on Tuesday night, Jordan Ayew acknowledged that he and his teammates were not good enough.
He furthermore added that the team lacked experience with the young players who were mostly playing their very first AFCON.
“We were not good enough. If you concede in the 3rd minute then you chase the game. Obviously not good enough,” said Jordan Ayew after the game.
“We chased the game and they scored three goals. Now we have to come back stronger. The squad is young, most of them guys its their first AFCON and we have to prepare for the World Cup qualifiers and then another AFCON next year,” he added.
