We weren’t good enough – Jordan Ayew reacts after Black Stars’ embarrassing AFCON exit
Jordan Ayew, the striker for the Black Stars, has admitted that the team was not good enough after exiting the group stages of AFCON 2021.
Jordan was a member of Ghana’s blunt frontline, which only scored one goal in their first two games against Morocco and Gabon.
The 10-man Black Stars team scored twice in their final match against Comoros, but their defence allowed three more goals, sealing their fate.
Jordan Ayew, who leaves Cameroon without a single goal, said after the game that the group stage exit was a wake-up call for the young squad and an experience they must learn from.
“We were not good enough, we have a young squad, it’s a wake-up call for everyone and if we don’t learn from this then I don’t know,” he is quoted as having said by GTV Sports.

This was the first time the Stars had exited an AFCON without a single victory, and the first time they had exited at the group stage since 2006.
