World Cup 2022: Ghanaians slam Andre Ayew for missing penalty against Uruguay

Ghanaians have criticised Andre Ayew after he made a horrendous miss from the penalty spot which would have put the African nation ahead in their grudge match with Uruguay.

The Black Stars were awarded a penalty after Mohammed Kudus was brought down by goalkeeper Sergio Rochet.

After a lengthy VAR inspection, German referee Daniel Siebert pointed to the spot, and Ayew stepped up to the spot.

The Ghana captain stood over the ball for several more seconds only to take a poor low shot that Rochet easily stopped.

Ghanaian fans took to Twitter to criticise the Al Sadd forward whose missed penalty would prove very costly for Otto Addo's side.

Meanwhile, veteran Ghanaian journalist Kwabena Yeboah broke down in uncontrollable tears as he anchored a show discussing the game between the Blacks Stars and Uruguay.

The four-time African champions renew their rivalry with the South American nation twelve years after the dramatic quarter-final clash in South Africa.

Ghana were eliminated from the tournament after Luis Suarez stopped a goal-bound effort from Dominic Adiyiah with his hands. Even though the ex-Liverpool forward was red carded, Ghana forward Asamoah Gyan missed the penalty.
