Thousands of Ghanaians took to social media to pour out their frustrations over the poor nature of the Accra Sports Stadium pitch which hosted the Black Stars' 3-1 win over Lone Stars of Liberia 3-1 in an international friendly on Tuesday, September 12.

This match provided an opportunity for Ghana's head coach and fans alike to gauge the team's progress and potential following qualification to the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Goals from Ernest Nuamah, Kudus Mohammed and substitute Jordan Ayew were enough for the Black Stars to record two consecutive wins as the visitors grabbed a late goal.

Though it was a tough game in the first half, the Stars managed to turn the game in their favor after recess to record three goals.

Many Ghanaians took to social media to bash the Ghana Football Association and the National Sports Authority for allowing the team to play on the watery pitch after a downpour.

Top personalities including politicians, journalists, ex-footballers, and other high-profile personalities were not left out as they all joined the campaign, asking authorities to get the Accra Sports Stadium fixed and not rent it out for other functions.

GhanaWeb caught some reactions from Twitter after the game.

Below are some tweets:
