Captain of the Black Stars, Andre Ayew, has admitted the team failed sadly at the 2019 africa Cup of nations in Egypt and is taking full responsibility for the team’s exit to tunisia at the round of 16 stages.
Ghana lost 5-4 in penalty shootouts to the North Africans after the game ended 1-1 after extra time.
Ayew, who was named captain ahead of the tournament, believes the team has disappointment Ghanaians and has currently place his head on the chopping board.
“I am very unhappy and disappointed that we couldn’t get to the next stage however we want to take heart and be stronger. the entire team gave everything but it didn’t go our way.
“As a ghanaian and as a leader no player is to be held responsible for this; I take all the responsibility and that we are going to work hard and come back stronger.
“If we’ve been kicked out at this stage it means that we had a foul tournament and since we couldn’t accomplish the mission we came here for, i will be able to say we failed,”
The exit from the competition in Egypt is the worst performance of the Black Stars at an AFCON since 2006 when they failed to progress from the group stages, with the country’s AFCON title drought now set to exceed 40 years.
