Ghana 2-3 Comoros: Black Stars crash out of AFCON

The Black Stars’ adventure in Cameroon has come to an end following a surprise defeat to the debutants

Ghana have been knocked out of the Africa Cup of Nations finals following a 3-2 defeat to debutants Comoros on Tuesday.

Richmond Boakye-Yiadom and Alexander Djiku were on target for the Black Stars but an Ahmed Mogni double and an El Fardou effort won all three points for the Coelacanths in the Group C matchday three fixture at Stade Roumde Adjia Stadium in the Cameroonian city of Garoua.

The result left the four-time champions, who earlier lost 1-0 to Morocco and drew 1-1 with Gabon, bottom on the table with one point, while Comoros picked up the third spot and are in a position to qualify to the Round of 16 as one of the four best third-placed sides.

Morocco and Gabon finished in first and second positions, respectively, following their 2-2 draw in the other group game on Tuesday.
