Ghana captain Andre Ayew is content with Black Stars slender victory over visiting Ethiopia in the opening fixture of Group G of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Friday night.
According to him, Ghana snatching the three points is the most important thing following the impressive performance by the visitors at the Cape Coast Stadium.
Wakaso Mubarak’s first-half long-range shot handed Black Stars a 1-0 win against the Walias. The victory moves Ghana to the top of the table after the first round of matches.
However, majority of Ghanaians have expressed their disappointment about the output of the team on the day.
In spite of the complaints, Ayew believes the players did their best especially when they played in front of few Ghanaian supporters due to Covid-19 restrictions.
“Three points. Nothing comes easy,” Ayew posted on Twitter.
“Not a full stadium but great atmosphere. We thank all Ghanaians for their support and love. we keep going,” Ayew added.
The Black Stars will leave Accra for Johannesburg, South Africa on Saturday to prepare for the next game against Bafana Bafana at the Soccer City Sports Stadium on Monday, September 6.
Four players who started the game against Ethiopia will not make the trip to South Africa due to the Covid-19 scare. They include Jordan Ayew, Jeffrey Schlupp, Andy Yiadom and Daniel Amartey.
These players ply their trade in England and with South Africa being named among the countries with red flag for COVID-19 cases by the British government, they will be excused.
