Former Black Stars Striker Augustine Arhinful says the Black Stars exit from the 2017 AFCON did not come as a surprise because they have failed to perform at the tournament.
Ghana’s dream of ending a 35 year wait for the Africa cup of nation’s title suffered a huge blow on Thursday after Cameroon defeated the Black Stars 2-0 in the second semi- final game in Franceville, Gabon.
Two second-half goals from defender Michael Ngadieu and a late strike from Christian Bassagog ensured that the Cameroonians set up a date with Egypt in the finals.
Speaking to Nii Arday Clegg on the Morning Starr, Arhinful insists the Black Stars struggled to perform since the start of the competition.
“Surprise, i wasn’t because truth be told we have not performed that well ”
“We know this team to be a good team but we haven’t performed well in this tournament so i wasn’t surprised”he told Starr FM
“I would have been surprised if we had played that well and lost so surprised,no”he added
