The Black Stars suffered a humiliating group-stage exit at the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations after losing 3-2 by debutants Comoros in their final group C clash on Tuesday night.

El Fardou Ben Nabouhane put the islanders ahead early on, and Ghana then went down to 10 men when Andre Ayew was shown a straight red card.

Ahmed Mogni doubled the lead before the Black Stars fought back to make it 2-2. However, Mogni tapped in his second in the 85th minute to inflict Ghana’s first group-stage exit since 2006.

Speaking in his post-match media engagement, coach Rajevac said his focus is the World Cup so he will stay on despite his failure to lead the Balck Stars to African Glory.

“I will not resign, because I came to take this team to the World Cup,” the Serbian said after the game.

“We didn’t start the game against Comoros how we wanted and we conceded an early goal. It was a poor start for us and and then the red card to Andre Ayew changed everything. I think Comoros deserved this win because they played very well than us,” Rajevac added.

Ghana needed a win over the Islanders and hope for a next round stage of the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations tournament but succumbed to Comoros.

The result 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 their maiden victory.

Incredibly, the side ranked 132nd in the world now have a chance to reach the knockout stages as one of four best-ranked third-placed sides.
