“The fight is not over; We've shown that we never give up. Thank you to our fans for your support, See you on Monday” he tweeted.


Defeat means Ghana are bottom of Group H after Uruguay and South Korea played out a goalless draw earlier on Thursday.

The Black Stars will now turn their attention to their upcoming matches against South Korea and Uruguay on November 28 and December 2, respectively.
