Ghana didn't learn from what happened at 2014 World Cup - Kevin Prince Boateng

Published on: 19 January 2022

Former Ghana international Kevin Prince Boateng says Black Stars did not learn from the mistake they made at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Ghana exited from the group phase of the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon after losing 3-2 to Comoros in their final Group C game on Tuesday.

The West African country suffered a defeat in their opening game against Morocco and a draw against Gabon.

"In 2014 we had more talent than the 2010 team, but the team spirit was lacking and that’s why we couldn’t beat Portugal and Germany," he said while speaking to fans in a Twitter space after the game.

"When we came in 2014, many of us felt like superstars, we had become so big since 2010 and maybe that affected our outlook and we didn’t try and create a good atmosphere."

The former Barcelona midfielder, "We didn’t learn from 2014, you see France [when they exited 2010 world cup in group stages] they took their experience and became a family."

This was the first time the Stars have crashed out of an AFCON without a single win and the first time they’ve exited at the group stage since 2006.
