AFCON 2021: Disgraced Black Stars to arrive in Ghana on Thursday

Published on: 19 January 2022

The Black Stars will arrive in their native Ghana on Thursday after their shocking exit from the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

The four-time African champions are expected to fly back home nicodemously after a disastrous outing in the Central African region.

It's been a humiliating performance from the Black Stars after finishing bottom of Group C with just a point from three games.

The Black Stars cemented their bottom-ranked status in the group after losing 3-2 to tiny debutants Comoros in Doula on Tuesday night.

The defeat has sparked a wave of anger and controversy in the West African nation with widespread calls for the sacking of Milovan Rajevac and massive reforms.

The Serb was the man to lead the Black Stars to the final in 2010 and the World Cup quarter-finals that same year.

But times are harder for Ghanaian fans after Rajevac could only guide them through to Africa's play-offs for this year's World Cup.

After only topping their qualifying group ahead of South Africa on goals scored,  the West African giants are unseeded for the play-off draw - facing one of Senegal, Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria and Nigeria for a place in Qatar.

Ghana's disjointed performances has signaled a new low for Ghana football amid talks for serious reforms in the wake of the shameful output.

The Black Stars lost 1-0 to Morocco before drawing 1-1 with Gabon and losing to tiny Comoros to finish bottom of group C with just a point.

Although the defeat on Tuesday was a new low for Ghana, their disjointed performances were cause for concern in the lead-up to the match.

Having failed to win an AFCON title since 1982, Rajevac is under serious pressure after returning for a second spell in charge in September.
