The Crystal Palace forward has said that the performance of the senior national team of Ghana wasn’t good enough to earn them a qualification to the knockout stage of the tournament.
Black Stars attacker Jordan Ayew has admitted that the team wasn’t enough to end Ghana’s 40-year Africa Cup of Nations trophy drought after suffering a shocking exit from the 33rd edition staged in Cameroon. Ghana suffered a humiliating group-stage exit at the Africa Cup of Nations after the four-time champions were beaten by debutants Comoros in the final Group C game at the Roumde Adjia Stadium on Tuesday night. Speaking after the game, Jordan Ayew, who leaves Cameroon without a single goal said the group stage exit was a wake-up call for the young squad and an experience they must learn from. “We were not good enough, we have a young squad, it’s a wake-up call for everyone and if we don’t learn from this then I don’t know,” he is quoted as having said by GTV Sports. The result in Group C will go down as one of the biggest shocks in Nations Cup history as Comoros scored at the finals for the first time and then went on to record a memorable maiden victory.
