Black Stars Did Not Perform Poorly In Qatar: GFA Exco Member



Dr. Tony Aubynn, a member of the Ghana Football Association’s (GFA) Executive Council, says that despite not achieving their semi-final goal at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, the Black Stars gave it their all.

The four-time African champions lost to Portugal and Uruguay in the opening round but defeated South Korea. As a result, they were then eliminated from the prestigious competition.

Ghana had to defeat Uruguay in their last group match in order to advance, but the Black Stars were eliminated from Qatar after Andre Ayew missed a penalty and the defense struggled.

On Akoma FM, he said: “We are out of the World Cup because it’s football, football is an unpredictable game, our players were determined to achieve the set target, likewise other teams were also determined.

“On the day, things didn’t go the way we wanted and that is football for you. But our exit is not anything strange, much as it is a painful experience for all Ghanaians, Germany and Uruguay who are once champions of the competition all exited with us.

He went ahead to iterate that:“Before the tournament, Ghana were the least favourite to win the competition. I think the team didn’t disgrace themselves at all, many supporters from different countries appreciated our performance and believed the future looked bright.”

“Even though we were unable to win the competition, we really raised the flag high. Let’s focus on the positives because this team is still young and with time, they will come good.”
