Ghanaians on social media have expressed disappointment with the penalty missed by the captain of Ghana’s senior national team, Andre Dede Ayew.
Black Stars in their last group-stage match against Uruguay was awarded a penalty in the first half of the game.
However, this penalty was sorely missed by Andre Ayew.
In light of this, Ghanaians have taken to social media to express their disappointment in regards to the penalty miss.
Some comments on Twitter seem to suggest that the Black Stars captain has taken the mantle of insults from former Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan who missed the penalty kick in 2010 once again against Uruguay.
