On Monday, Dede Ayew, Ghana’s captain began and played the entire game as the Black Stars were defeated 1-0 by one of the favorites, Morocco. I am not in good state for the previous two days – Ghana captain Andre Ayew.
“I have not been feeling well for the past two days, I wanted to play, my colleagues wanted me on the pitch and I did everything because I have been waiting for this for 3 years now, we lost and I was unlucky to add a cut on my eye to it,” Ayew stated.

The Black Stars now have to win their next two games to avoid elimination.
Ayew, on the other hand, is confident that his team will beat Gabon and Comoros to advance to the next round.
“I think we can get through and we will get through cos it is our duty and we will make sure we qualify to the next stage. We lost the first game in 2010, 2015 but we pulled through. We were not expecting this to start but we will make it”, he added.
Most of the fans and ex-players are very disappointed in the 1 goal defeat to Morocco. They expected the senior team to have performed better.
Ghana plays Gabon in our next game and everyone is optimistic that it must be a win or else the Black Stars will be eliminated from the tournament.
