Black Stars return home with 15 players

the Black Stars of Ghana have returned to Accra after their elimination from the African Cup of Nations 2019.

The Carthage Eagles of Tunisia damped the dreams of the Black Stars to clinch their fifth African Cup trophy.

The Ghanaian contingent landed at the Kotoka International Airport at 3:15 am on Thursday.

All the members of the Technical team headed by Coach Kwasi came with the team.

Only 15 out of 23 players returned to Accra with the remaining 8 flying back to their respective places in Europe.

The list of players who arrived in Accra were;

Richard Ofori, Felix Annan, Lawrence Ati-Zigi, Joseph Attamah, Samuel Owusu, Kwabena Owusu, Afriyie Acquah, John Boye, Dede Ayew, Jordan Ayew, Kwadwo Asamoah, Asamoah Gyan, Mubarak Wakaso, Baba Rahman and Lumor Agbenyenu.

Ghana lost 4-5 on penalties to Tunisia on Monday June 8 at the Ismailia Stadium in Egypt after drawing 1-1 in regulation time.

This is the first time the Stars failed to enter the last four after dropping out of the group stages in Egypt 2006.
