There was nothing but disappointment among Ghanaians as the Black Stars were held to a 2-2 stalemate in their Africa Cup of Nations opening game against Benin on Tuesday.
The Squirrels stunned the four-time champions in just the second minute through Mickael Pote, but captain Andre Ayew and younger brother Jordan hit back to send Ghana 2-1 up before half-time.
After Ghana centre-back John Boye was sent off for a second bookable offence, Pote registered his second goal of the night to seal a 2-2 draw in the Group F fixture at the Ismailia Stadium.
Expectedly, many took to social media to express disappointment about the result by coach James Kwesi Appiah and his charges.
After 2 years of the purported rebuilding, Kwesi Appiah built a muddy house out of clay.. He should be sack. Nothing special about him, He's one of the luckiest coach in this world, who doesn't have Coachingtalent. #BlackStars— ghettoKidd18 (@ghettokidd18) June 25, 2019

- John Boye must blame himself. He was warned, twice.— Gary #JoyAFCON (@garyalsmith) June 25, 2019
- Christian Atsu shouldn't have lasted 90'
- Samuel Owusu sub was bizarre. He had legs to go on.
- Jordan: great game. André: good game.
- Couldn't tell what pattern ???????? played. #JoyAFCON pic.twitter.com/uj3EZ2NRhS
Why do you even think of time wasting leading BENIN 2-1 in the 50th minute? How?— Saddick Adams (@SaddickAdams) June 25, 2019
The referee warned John Boye twice for time wasting antics before red. Such a silly move
When they finish the game, they should make John Boye go and kneel down in the middle of the pitch.— Lexis (@niilexis) June 25, 2019
