Big Blow: Ghana captain Andre Ayew out of FIFA World Cup Qualifiers


Ghana captain Andre Ayew won’t be available for the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification play-offs in March after his red card in the Africa Cup of Nations on Tuesday evening.

Ayew was red carded in the Black Stars’ last group game where they loss to debutants Comoros to bow out of the tournament.

The 32-year-old was sent off after what seemed a dangerous tackle on Comoros goalkeeper Salime Ben Boina who couldn’t continue the match due to a serious injury he sustained afterwards.

The Black Stars succumbed to a 3-2 embarrassing defeat to Comoros at the Stade Roumdé Adjia in Garoua on Tuesday night to exit the AFCON at the group stage.

Ghana finished bottom in Group C with Morocco and Gabon booking their tickets to knockouts stages of the tournament.

Ghana will know their World Cup play-offs opponents on 22 January 2022 during a draw ceremony in Yaoundé.

Ayew is suspended for the next two competitive matches which automatically rules him out of the World Cup qualifying play-off tie in March.
