Accra is buzzing with excitement as Ghana’s unfortunate AFCON narrative persists, with Nigerians retaliating in a satisfying turn of events

Date:

Ghanaian players and fans faced deep disappointment as the Black Stars experienced an early exit from the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.

This marks the second consecutive AFCON where Ghana failed to advance beyond the group stage, following their 2019 elimination in Egypt.

Despite being favorites in a group with Cape Verde and Mozambique, a 2-1 loss to Cape Verde and 2-2 draws against Egypt and Mozambique resulted in only two points out of nine for the Black Stars.

Criticisms were directed at players like goalkeeper Richard Ofori and the Ayew brothers, while fans consoled Mohammed Kudus for his brace against Egypt.

The exit extends Ghana’s quest for a fifth AFCON trophy since 1982, and frustrated fans expressed their discontent through actions like vandalizing the team bus.

The rivalry with Nigeria also surfaced, with banter extending beyond football to various aspects of culture.

Ghana’s decline since the time of Asamoah Gyan was lamented by some fans, while others highlighted Nigeria’s perceived superiority across different domains.
