We came here to win the game but it didn’t happen - Chris Hughton

During the 2026 World Cup Qualifiers on Tuesday afternoon, Ghana's aspirations took a hit as the Black Stars suffered a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Comoros in Moroni. 

Despite arriving with a winning mindset, Ghana's coach, Chris Hughton, expressed his disappointment, stating, "We came here to win the game, but it didn't happen."

Comoros shot into the lead through Myziane Maolida’s solo effort in the 43rd minute mark.

And with no additional goal, Comoros cruised to victory to merit the three maximum points while they hand Ghana back to back defeats.

“We came here to win the game but it didn’t happen. I’m not satisfied with the results, congratulations to Comoros but we didn’t play well enough to utilize all the opportunities we had” he said.

The Black Stars remain at three points after two rounds of games, while Comoros ascends to the top of the group with four points from two matches.

Ghana will now turn their attention to the upcoming 2023 Africa Cup of Nations tournament to be staged in Ivory Coast between January and February 2024.
