The Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture has described Ghana’s performance at the 2021 TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament as not only disappointing outrageously abysmal.
The Black Stars were eliminated from the continental tournament on Tuesday night following a disgraceful 3-2 defeat to Comoros in the final Group C game.
Through a press statement issued by the Sports Ministry today, Minister Mustapha Ussif says government is disappointed.
“The entire country is extremely disappointed by the abysmal performance and early exit of the Black Stars from the ongoing 2021 African Cup of Nations in Cameroon, and the Ministry of Youth and Sports shares in the nation's sentiment,” part of the statement reads.
The Ministry says immediately, it is going to engage the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to take steps to restore the Black Stars to its rightful place on the continent.
“The Ministry of Youth and Sports is committed to taking urgent steps to ensure that the Black Stars is restored to its status as a symbol of national pride for all Ghanaians and a powerhouse of African football,” the statement concludes.
