BLACK STARS ELIMINATION, DEDE AYEW APOLOGISES

Captain for the Black Stars of Ghana, Andre Dede Ayew apologises on behalf of the team to Ghanaians. This concerns their disappointing exit from the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament.

Ghana was stunned by Tunisia on Monday in the last round of 16 match played at the Ismailia Stadium. A one-all result at the end of 90 minutes, extra time pushed the match in penalties where the Carthage Eagles won.

A good team goal completed by attacker Taha Khenissi on the 73rd minute, canceled in the dying minute of the match. This was courtesy of an own goal from Rami Bedoui to force the match into extra time.

Ghana’s Caleb Ekuban failed to convert his kick in the shootout as Tunisia scored all five to progress into quarter-finals.

He indicated that Ghana played a good game but will not complain because that’s football. ‘Anything can happen’, he added.. Dede  however insists they will learn from their mistake and get back stronger the next time.

“Ghana has played a good game and this is football and we have to learn from the mistakes”. The Black Stars captain told Time Sport.
