Black Stars face Comoros in their final group C encounter in Garoua this evening as they hope for a win to stand a chance of making it into the round of 16 stage of the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations tournament.
This will be the first encounter between Ghana and the Comoros at the Africa Cup of Nations.
Ghana have only won one of their last eight Africa Cup of Nations games (D4 L3), failing to score in half of those matches.
Comoros could become the fifth team to fail to score a single group stage goal in their debut Africa Cup of Nations tournament, after Burundi (2019), Gabon (1994), Sierra Leone (1994) and Mozambique (1986).
Ghana have just one point so far in this year’s edition (D1 L1) – they’ve never failed to win at least one group stage match in all their previous 22 appearances at the Africa Cup of Nations. The Black stars last failed to progress from their AFCON group in 2006.
Nine of Ghana’s last 13 goals (70%) at the Africa Cup of Nations have been scored by brothers André (5) or Jordan (4) Ayew. After netting his 10th AFCON goal against Gabon, André Ayew is looking to score in consecutive matches in the competition for the first time.
The sStars loss their opening game of the competition to the Atlas Lions of Morocco when they succumbed to a late goal due to bad defending.
The bBlack Stars also suffered a heart in their second game of the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations tournament against the Panthers of Gabon when they gave away another avoidable late goal after leafing for 70 minutes following Andre Ayew’s sweet strike on the 18th minute mark.
Ghana ccould still exit the competition with a win over Comoros if results from other games goes against them.
