2021 AFCON: Andre Ayew optimistic Ghana will beat Comoros in final group game to seal last 16 qualification
Andre Ayew says the Black Stars are going to win their last game against Comoros and progress to the round of the 16 stage of the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations.
Ghana were held to a 1-1 draw by Gabon in their second group game on Friday.
Andre Ayew gave Black Stars the lead in the 18th minute but his strike was cancelled out by Gabon sub-Jim Allevinah’s 88th-minute equaliser.
“We are Ghana. We are going to win the last game and go through,” the 32-year-old, who won the Man of the Match said after the game.
“We had the ball and we put it out intentionally because our player was on the floor.
“So what do we do? When the ball is coming, you take the ball, Gabon, and give it back to Ghana. [It is as] simple as that!
He added, “So, we were waiting for the ball to come back but the ball was not coming back and they played and that’s how they got their only open chance of the game. That is it.”
“It is very small of them. I am disappointed in them.”
Milovan Rajevac’s side are currently 3rd in Group C with one point and will need to pick up all three points against Comoros who have lost their last two matches against group leaders Morocco and Gabon.
