‘Sack CK Akonnor’ – Ghanaians After Shock Defeat To South Africa
Ghanaians are demanding the immediate sacking of Black Stars coach Charles Akonnor following defeat to South Africa.
Akonnor’s side performed poorly and deservedly lost 1-0 against Bafana Bafana in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying match played at the FNB Stadium on Monday evening.
Ahead of the match, Ghanaians expected a better showing after criticising the drab performance against Ethiopia despite the team winning last Friday.
But with a number of key players missing because of Covid-19 restrictions, the Black Stars were outplayed and were fortunate to concede just one goal.
South Africa despite dominating and creating the best chances scored in the 84th minute when Bongokuhle Hlongwane connected a low cross from close range to secure victory.
The defeat is a major setback in Ghana’s bid to return to the World Cup as they now sit a point behind new Group G leaders South Africa, and Ghanaians want Akonnor sacked.
‘Sack CK’ is among the top trends Twitter Ghana with over 1,100 tweets, all calling for the Akonnor to leave after just one and half years in charge of the senior national team. Akonnor replaced Kwasi Appiah who was relieved of his duties at the end of December 2019.
