Black Stars clandestinely sneak into Ghana after lackadaisical AFCON display

Ghana senior men’s soccer team, the Black Stars arrived in Ghana from Cameroon following their disappointing showing at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

Ghana endured a poor run in the tournament in Cameroon following a disappointing 3-2 defeat to Comoros on Tuesday.

The result saw Ghana finish at the bottom of Group C after failing to win any of their three group matches.

To the despondency of many Ghanaians, this was the first time since 2006 that the Black Stars have been eliminated from the AFCON in the group stages.

According to TV3 Sports journalist, Thierry Nyann, the team arrived in Ghana in the wee hours of Thursday.

In a Twitter post sighted by AfroGazette, he wrote: “ The Black Stars arrived in Ghana at 3 AM this morning. 3 AM!!!!!!!! If they won the trophy, they’d have arrived in the afternoon to get fans. They’ve gone to their homes silently.”

Meanwhile, Ghana’s Ministry of Youth and Sports has summoned the leadership of the Ghana Football Association to an emergency meeting following the Black Stars’ poor showing at the AFCON.
