“We were not good enough” – Jordan Ayew on the Black Stars’ AFCON exit


Jordan Ayew, the Black Stars’ striker, admitted 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.
