Dr. Tony Aubynn, a member of the GFA Executive Council, thinks the Black Stars did not do poorly in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
He believes that the team’s efforts were commendable, even if they were ultimately unsuccessful and did not go to the next round of competition.
He said that it is not surprising that Ghana was eliminated from the World Cup since even past winners like Germany and Uruguay had been eliminated.
“We are out of the World Cup because it’s football, football is an unpredictable game, our players were determined to achieve the set target, likewise other teams were also determined,” Dr. Aubynn said on Akoma FM, as quoted by 3Sports.
“On the day, things didn’t go the way we wanted and that is football for you. But our exit is not anything strange, much as it is a painful experience for all Ghanaians, Germany and Uruguay who are once champions of the competition all exited with us.
“Before the tournament, Ghana were the least favourite to win the competition. I think the team didn’t disgrace themselves at all, many supporters from different countries appreciated our performance and believed the future looked bright.”
The Black Stars finished bottom of Group H after winning against South Korea while losing the other two against Portugal and Uruguay.
Meanwhile, Ghana coach Otto Addo has also stepped from his role.
