The senior national team, the Black Stars, did not deserve to win their second game at the African Cup of Nations against Gabon, according to a member of the ruling NPP Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, .
In a series of tweets, he claimed that Andre Ayew’s goal was the sole amazing moment in the game, and that “the rest was a bundle of rudderless average.”
“The coach, simply, is a mess,” Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko added.
“He was content to sit on a one-nil lead, and the game inevitably finished in our favor.” “Sad!” he said in his tweet.
At the Stade Omnisport Amadou Ahidjo in Yaounde, the Black Stars’ second group game at the 33rd Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) concluded in a dramatic 1-1 tie, with Jim Allevinha scoring a late goal to cancel out Andre Ayew’s effort.
Andre Ayew gave the Black Stars the lead in the 18th minute, but the team fell short with just two minutes remaining, giving Gabon a decent chance of advancing for the AFCON Round of 16 stage.
Both teams struggled to maintain the intensity from the first half after the break, but Gabon appeared to be the most dangerous.
Jim Allevinha scored the equalizer for Gabon with two minutes remaining in the game, sparking wild jubilation among Gabonese fans in Yaoundé.
After the final whistle, there were minor fisticuffs, with Ghana striker Benjamin Tetteh punching a Gabonese player and receiving a red card even though the game had concluded.
As a result of Friday’s result, Ghana must win their final game against Comoros at all costs if they are to advance to the knockout stages.
