Black Stars forward Jordan Ayew thinks that the team’s lack of experience accounted for Ghana’s defeat against the United States last night.
The four-time African champions suffered a crushing 4-0 defeat at the Geodis Park after a dismal opening-half performance.
The team has now suffered back-to-back defeats in October’s international friendlies against Mexico and the U.S.A respectively.
Ayew has asked for patience for the team’s new recruits.
Speaking in a post match interview after the game, the 32-year-old striker said, “First of all, I feel like we need more time because it is a new group with a lot of new players and most of the players are inexperienced so it is not easy but we are working on it because we know we don’t have enough time and this type of game is a reality check.”
He also added, “Now we know our level and we know we have to keep working hard to get this cohesion (together) and learn how to play together. It will come with time. We are pushing hard and trying our best to have better performances as a team and with time, it will come.”
The Black Stars will begin their 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers from 13-21 November, 2023 next month.
They will host Madagascar at home and travel away to Comoros on the 15th and 18th of November respectively.
