AFCON 2021: Ghana in a must-win situation as they take on Comoros

2 min read

After a disappointing start to their TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations, Cameroon 2021 campaign that saw gathering a lone point in two games, Ghana are hoping to avoid an early exit when they face debutants Comoros, who lost their first two games as well.

A lone point from two games is not what Ghana were looking for. But they still have time to respond.

Against Comoros it’s a must win for Andre Ayew and his teammates if they want to avoid an embarrassing exit.

A 1-0 defeat against Morocco was followed by conceding a late goal to Gabon to grab a single point that put Milovan Rajevac troops in a situation they would like to avoid by beating Comoros on Tuesday.

“It’s a very important game for us. We need to finish the group with a win and will do everything to guarantee this happening. Our team develops well but we need time and patience,” Ghana national team head coach Milovan Rajevac said.

Meanwhile, despite losing their two opening games, 1-0 to Gabon and 2-0 to Morocco, Comoros had gained the respect of everyone at the ongoing TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations.

Showing passion and determination at their very first AFCON appearance, Comoros had a lot to gain even if they haven’t won or scored to the moment.

Against Ghana, they will fight for more and why not record their maiden points and goals in the history of the tournament.
