Ministry of Youth and Sports in Ghana has summoned the Ghana Football Association to an emergency meeting scheduled for Friday, January 21, 2022 to discuss what went wrong with the team as they exited Africa Cup of Nations at the group stage. In a press release dated 19th January 2022, the Ministry emphasized its commitment to ensuring that Black Stars of Ghana are restored to the position they deserve in African football.
“The Ministry has summoned the Ghana Football Association (G. F. A) leadership to an emergency meeting scheduled for Friday, 21st January, 2022 to urgent discuss and take decisions aimed at salvaging the performance of the Black Stars especially in the next set of games. The Ministry of Youth and Sports is committed to taking urgent steps to ensure that the Black Stars is restored to its status as a symbol of national pride for all Ghanaians and a powerhouse of African football.”
Black Stars of Ghana - prior to the commencement of the Nations Cup - were tasked by President Akufo-Addo to win this year’s Nations Cup. Black Stars of Ghana failed to live up to expectations following an abysmal performance in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations.
Milovan Rajevac led his charges into the competition and lost the opening fixture to Morocco. Black Stars tried to make amends in the second group game against Gabon but had to fight for a point after taking the lead through skipper Dede Ayew.
Wild calculations became the order of day among Ghanaians as some were full of hope that the Senior National team can pull a surprise and advance to the next stage.
In the last group game against Comoros, Black Stars were handed a shocking 3 - 2 defeat. Comoros broke the deadlock in the first half, added the second goal in the second half. Ghana pulled one back and restored parity. Comoros broke the heart of Ghanaians with the winning goal in the closing stages of the game. Black Stars toiled to even the scores but were denied any opportunity to come closer to glory.
Ghana had to exit the competition with a point and became the last team in Group C.
Black Stars head coach Milovan Rajevac is not stepping despite a dreadful display in Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon. The Serbian trainer looks ahead to leading Ghana into World Cup after exiting at the group stage of the continental showpiece. He believes Ghana have what it takes to make it to the global competition.
