Ghana captain Andre Ayew was struck with double agony following his painful penalty miss against Uruguay
Ayew’s penalty misses inadvertently contributed to Ghana’s group-stage elimination after losing 2-0 to the South American nation.
In a statement released by the Al-Sadd forward via his Instagram account after Ghana’s exit from the World Cup, he detailed the ill luck he was going through together with the death of his godson in the morning before Ghana’s opener against Portugal and also confirmed the collapse of his daughter after the Uruguay game.
“Our final group match result was not what we were looking forward to in the tournament, but unfortunately, it ended up this way,” the statement said.
“Personally, it has been a very difficult moment for me in the past few days. I lost my godson the morning before the Portugal game, and my daughter was also rushed to the hospital after the Uruguay [game]. Thanks to the Almighty Allah, she’s getting better.”“These difficult moments will inspire me to come back stronger and better in the future, and so I believe, will the Black Stars,” the statement continued.
In our true Ghanaian spirits, WE WILL NEVER SAY DIE, UNTIL THE BONES ARE ROTTEN, WO KUM APEM A, APEM BEBA.
“Thank you all for your prayers and unwavering support.“REST IN PEACE, ADAM.”
