Black Stars assistant captain Andre Ayew was not happy with officiating after 1-0 loss to Egypt.

After falling to Egypt on Wednesday evening to miss out on top spot in Group D, West Ham star Ayew was not pleased with the performance of referee Bakary Gassama.

Ayew had issues with the referee and was in the second half seen expressing dissatisfaction over decisions of the Gambian against Ghana.

"Refereeing should have been better towards us," Ayew told BeIN Sports channel after the game, without elaborating further.

"We were dominant for long spells especially in the second half. Egypt didn't create many clear-cut chances apart from the free-kick goal."

Ghana lost to Egypt courtesy a 10th minute fantastic strike from AS Roma star Mohammed Salah.

Black Stars will square off against DR Congo in the quarter-final.
