A member of the GFA Executive Council named Dr. Tony Aubynn believes the Black Stars did not do poorly at the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
Even though the team ultimately failed and was eliminated from the tournament, he thinks their efforts were admirable.
He claimed that Ghana’s elimination from the World Cup was not unexpected given that previous champions like Germany and Uruguay had also experienced elimination.
According to 3Sports, Dr. Aubynn said on Akoma FM, “We are out of the World Cup because it’s football, and football is an unpredictable game. Our players were determined to achieve the set aim, and other teams were as determined.
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.
