Atsu heartbroken after losing semifinals to Cameroon

Newcastle united winger Christian Atsu is heartbroken after the Black Stars failed bid to win the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations following defeat to Cameroon in the semi-final on Thursday night.
Atsu featured and dazzled defenders with his darting runs but failed to produce the much needed goals as Ghana lost to inexperience Indomitable.
Atsu believes the players gave their all with a spirited display but could not achieve their target of winning the tournament.

"Yes of course we are very disappointed because for us we were fighting to win the cup. We knew that even making it to the final was nothing for us," Atsu said in a post-match interview.
"We had no option than to win the ultimate at the tournament and we lost in the semi-final.
''I can see in the dressing room that everybody was disappointed."
