Social media users react to Black Stars exit from AFCON 2021

Black Stars exist 2021 AFCON after a disappointing outing

Pressure mounts on Coach Milovan Rajevac to resign


A cross-section of Ghanaians have taken to social media platforms particularly Twitter to express their disappointment in the senior national team, the Black Stars, following their exit from the 2021 edition of the African Cup of Nations tournament.

The Black Stars bowed out of the tournament after suffering a humiliating 3-2 defeat to debutants in the competition, Comoros.

In their final Group C game against the Islanders, the senior national team went down by a goal from Comoros captain El Fardou Ben Nabouhane after just four minutes into the game.

Things went from bad to worse after Black Stars captain, Andre Dede Ayew was sent off in the 25th minute after he stuck his leg out in an attempt to win a 50-50 ball against the goalkeeper of Comoros inside the penalty box.

Comoros doubled their lead in the 62nd minutes through Ahmed Mogni – a score that shattered hopes of many Ghanaian football lovers of a possible comeback.

However, the Black Stars mounted a spirited effort in a bid to stage a comeback.

The efforts of the team were rewarded after substitute, Richmond Boakye-Yiadom headed home a consolation goal from a Daniel Kofi Kyereh corner kick.

The Black Stars continued pushing and were eventually rewarded with an equalizer through defender Alexander Djiku who tapped in from a cross.

With minutes to end the game, Comoros ended Ghana’s hopes of a comeback when Ahmed Mogni scored his second in the game to make it 3-2 for the Islanders.

Some Ghanaians after the match have lambasted the team and its head coach, Milovan Rajevac over their disappointing campaign. There are calls for Milovan Rejevac to resign but the Serbian in a post-match conference said he was focused on securing a World Cup spot for the Black Stars.
