Asamoah Gyan, who used to be the leader of the Black Stars, said that the Black Meteors didn’t do well at the U-23 African Cup of Nations in Morocco.
The team led by Ibrahim Tanko left the tournament with four points after a tie with Guinea in a game they had to win. Ghana was in the lead, but other teams from West Africa pushed them back and forced them to leave in the group stage.
Gyan wrote after the 1-1 tie with Guinea, “What I saw in this Black Meteors team is that some players think they are bigger than the rest of the team.” Little fuss and fame? SHM.
“What you do with the ball is not the only thing that matters in modern sports. It’s about how you play when you don’t have the ball. I see people think they can play by themselves. We need to start defending when we lose the ball. SMH”
Ghana got off to a good start by beating Congo Republic 3–2, but the hosts, Morocco, beat them 5–1 to put Ghana in its place.
People on social media have criticized the team for their bad performance. Because the best teams at the AFCON automatically qualify for the Olympics, Ghana will have to wait longer to get there.
In the past, Ghana last played football at the Olympics in 2004.
