Black Stars forward, Jordan Ayew, has urged Ghanaians to be patient with the current Black Stars squad following the team’s disappointing performance against the USA on October 18th.
Ghana suffered a humiliating 4-0 defeat against the United States of America at the GODIES Park in Nashville, Tennessee in their final friendly match of the month.
Giovanni Reyna scored a first-half brace for the USA, and additional goals from Christian Pulisic and Folarin Balogun resulted in a 4-0 loss, making it the most significant defeat the Black Stars have experienced against the USA.
During the post-match conference, Ayew stressed that the current players in the Black Stars are relatively inexperienced and will need time to build their cohesion.
“First of all, I feel like we need a bit of time because it is a new group with a lot of new players and most of the players are inexperienced so it is not easy but we are working on it because we know we don’t have time and these type of game is a reality check,” he said.
“We know our level but we have to keep working hard to get this equation together and learn how to play together but it will come with time but we also know that football does not need time so we are pushing hard and trying our best to better our performance as a team and with time, it will come.”
With two losses during the October international break, the Black Stars are determined to improve their performance when they return in November for the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
They will commence their qualification matches with encounters against Madagascar on November 13 and Comoros on November 21, leading up to the 2023 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Côte d’Ivoire next year.
