Ghanaians ask Ayew for forgiveness
Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Ghanaian football fans have taken to social media to beg Jordan Ayew for forgiveness, after his dazzling display against South Korea on Monday at the World Cup in Qatar.
The Crystal Palace star produced a brace of assists, as Ghana defeated South Korea 3-2 in a thrilling encounter at the Education City stadium in Al Rayyan.
Ayew was massively criticised by fans after the game against Portugal last Thursday, which the Black Stars lost after the forward was introduced.
Lamptey reacts to World Cup exit
Ghana defender Tariq Lamptey has expressed gratitude to fans of the Black Stars for their overwhelming support for the team at the World Cup in Qatar.
