England-born Ghanaian international, Kwesi Appiah has described Ghana’s early exit from the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon as “very devastating”.
The four-time African Champions suffered a humiliating 3-2 defeat to debutant Comoros in their final group C game in Garoua on Tuesday night.
The defeat means the Black Stars exit the competition with just a point and bottom of the group C standings behind leaders Morocco, Gabon and Comoros.
Reacting to the defeat in an interview, Appiah who played for Ghana in the 2015 AFCON under Avram Grant expressed his disappointment at the Black Stars humiliating exit.
“The early exit from the afcon is devastating for us all. We had high hopes for the tournament and to not even make it out the group is disappointing,” Kwesi Appiah told Ghanaian Sports portal Sportsworldghana.com after the game on Tuesday.
“It’s hard to say what went wrong but from watching the three games, Our attacking intent wasn’t aggressive enough we didn’t seem to have that cutting edge to put teams under consistent pressure.” The Crawly Town striker added.
The 2021 Africa Cup of Nations will go down as one of Ghana’s most disastrous campaigns in the history of the tournament.
The last time the Black Stars exited the group stage of the competition was in 2006.
