Ayew Slams 'Small' Gabon After Ghana Drop Points

Andre Ayew has criticised Gabon after their late equaliser denied Ghana a victory at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Ayew's impressive first-half strike was seemingly guiding the Black Stars to their first win in Group in C, although Jim Allevinah struck in the final two minutes for Gabon.

The Ghanaian skipper, however, was not pleased that Gabon did not put the ball out after Daniel-Kofi Kyereh went down with an injury.

“A Ghanaian player was [lying] on the field. We had the ball and we put the ball out because our player was on the field,” Ayew said at the post-match press conference, as per Goal.

"[On resumption, you are supposed to] take the ball and give it back to Ghana. Simple as that. So we were waiting for the ball to come back and the ball was never coming back. And they played [on] and that’s how they got their only open chance of the game. That is it.

“It’s very small of them. I’m disappointed in them, but no problem. We are Ghana, we’re going to win the last game and go through.”

There was also some unsavoury scenes at the full-time whistle after Ghana's Benjamin Tetteh was shown a red card for punching a Gabon player.
