The Ministry of Youth and Sports of the Republic of Ghana has summoned the leadership of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to an emergency slated for Friday January 21, 2022.
The reason for the meeting is to explain the Black Stars’ disastrous campaign at the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
The Black Stars of Ghana failed to progress to the knock out phase of the continent’s flagship football competition for the first time since 2006 after a humiliating 3-2 defeat to debutant Comoros in Garoua on Tuesday night.
The defeat means Ghana exit the competition without winning a game for the first time in their footballing history.
In the press statement signed by sector Minister Hon. Mustapha Ussif, the Sports Ministry expressed disappointment in the team’s performance as they “provided everything needed” to do well.
According to the statement, the team were logistically and financially equipped ahead of the competition which included a pre-tournament camp in Doha, Qatar.
Per the release, the leadership of the Ghana Football Association has been called to an “emergency meeting” scheduled for Friday, January 21, 2022, to “urgently discuss and make decisions aimed at salvaging the performance” of the team.
Below is the full statement.
