It’s fair to say Black Stars’ World Cup campaign got derailed when captain André Ayew blew the penalty earned by Kudus Mohammed in the Uruguay game.

It didn’t help that for one who charges up the lads when things seem to be going astray, there was no one to pep him up after the save such that all seemed to have gone downhill after the spot kick individually for him and the team.

La Celeste via Arrascaeta put two past Ghanaian goalie Ati-Zigi who is yet to shake off doubts about his competence and efficiency.

Having lost to Portugal 2-3, won against South Korea 3-2 in a tight game and succumbed to the Sky Blues 0-2 the Stars had to pack and return home or to their bases.

Reports suggest Andre Ayew’s daughter Inaya collapsed when his father missed the spot kick. This prompted Dede domiciled in Qatar as a Al Sadd player to rush to the hospital. She’s reportedly doing fine after medical intervention at the Sidra Medical and Research Center.

Ghana’s 2022 World Cup Qatar promised so much yet delivered little. Forget the Black Stars rallied the youngest team, crashing out of the group stages and failing to equal its quarter final berth at the South Africa 2010 World Cup.
