AFCON 2019: Black Stars arrive in Ghana after failing to end title drought

Black Stars arrived in Ghana on Thursday dawn from Egypt after failing to win the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

The team suffered a Round of 16 elimination at the hands of Tunisia on Monday evening.

The four-time champions got knocked out 5-4 on penalties by the Carthage Eagles after drawing 1-1 after extra-time.

The contingent touched down at the Kotoka International Airport around 02:00 am local time.

The team was without Christian Atsu who left Egypt for England after a hamstring injury ruled him out the competition. 

The team that arrived comprised of the technical staff of the head coach, Asamoah Gyan, Lawrence Ati-Zigi, Richard Ofori, Kwabena Owusu, Lumor Agbenyenu who were all in a sombre mood.

The usual team mood prior to the games at the tournament had always been joyous, with lots of singing and dancing but their arrival was in stark contrast, with hardly any fuss being made by the players or the staff.


There were no fans at the airport to welcome the team. 

Ghana were hoping to win the title for the first since 1982.
