Some Blacks Stars players have arrived in Ghana following the group stage exit from AFCON 2023.

Not the full squad who departed from Ghana to Ivory Coast returned as some players flew straight from Ivory Coast to their back to their clubs.

Some players spotted at the Kotoka International Airport were Dede Ayew, Jordan Ayew, Gideon Mensah, and a few others.

The Black Stars’s early exit was confirmed following Cameroon’s win against Gambia.

Ghana were hoping the Group C fixture would end in a draw to boost their chances of qualifying as one of the best third placed teams with two points.

The Black Stars were held to a 2-2 draw in their deciding fixture against Mozambique and thus needed the results to go in their favour.

However, Cameroon, who had a point prior to the game took their tally to 4 after the win and moved to second place while Guinea, who are on 4, slipped to third after a defeat to group winners Senegal.

This is the second successive group stage exit for the Black Stars after their early departure in the Cameroon 2021 edition.
