World Cup 2022: Ghana captain Andre Ayew reacts to defeat against Portugal

Black Stars captain Andre Ayew has reacted to Ghana’s defeat against Portugal in the 2022 World Cup on Thursday.

The 2016 European champions inflicted a 5-2 win over the Black Stars at the 974 stadium in Qatar.

Five goals in the second half ensured the Europeans collected all three points with second half substitute Rafael Leao scoring the winner.

Portugal opened the scoring from the spot through Cristiano Ronaldo who scored from the spot in the 65th minute.

Seven minutes later Ghana levelled through captain Andre Ayew, who connected to a fine pass from Mohammed Kudus.

Two minutes later the Portuguese took the lead after a mistake in the middle, leading to a Joao Felix lifting the ball over Ati Zigi.

Second half substitute Rafael Leao extended the lead for Portugal with ten minutes remaining.

Osman Bukari got a consolation for Ghana but it was a bit too late for Ghana to get a point.

After the game, Ayew urged calm as he believes Ghana will recover from defeat in subsequent games.

‘We always come out of difficult situations. We need to stay calm, go home, relax and increase our performance. We need to try and score more and concede less,” Ayew said after the game.

Defeat means Ghana are bottom of Group H after Uruguay and South Korea played out a goalless draw earlier on Thursday.

The Black Stars will now turn their attention to their upcoming matches against South Korea and Uruguay on November 28 and December 2, respectively
