Skipper Andre Ayew rallies the squad after a heartbreaking result against Portugal in Ghana’s first group game at the Mundial.
Black Stars turn their attention to the next group game against South Korea which comes off on November 28th.
The game will be played at the Education City Stadium at 13:00 GMT. The Al Sadd attacker grabbed headlines when his goal was described as the first goal by an African country at the ongoing tournament.
Andre Ayew took to his official Instagram page after the game to post: “proud of the team spirit and the unity showed on the pitch, we will prepare for the next game, giving up doesn’t exist in our dictionary Thanks for the support We keep going “
After the goalless first half, former Manchester United attacker Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring for Portugal via the penalty spot after a dubious call by the Moroccan-born American referee.
Ghana improved after Portugal scored and netted the equalised through skipper Andre Ayew from close range in the 73rd minute. Andre Ayew was substituted in the 77th minute he was replaced by Jordan Ayew.
But Portugal responded with two goals in two minutes to seal the points – Joao Felix converting a delightfully clipped finish and substitute Rafael Leao scoring another controversial goal.
Osman Bukari who came on to replace Mohammed Kudus headed in a late consolation for Ghana in the 89th minute.
Andre Ayew in a post-match comment urged Ghanaians to be calm as the battle returns on Monday.
