Ayew admits Ghana were second best against Cameroon

Ghana assistant captain Andre Ayew admits Black Stars were second best on Thursday night in the 2017 Africa cup of Nations semi-final loss to Cameroon
The West Ham United ace acknowledged the Black Stars are very disappointed with the 2-0 defeat which ended their hopes of winning the title for the first time since 1982.

Centre back Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui scored first after a mishap between goalkeeper Razak Brimah and John Boye.
Winger Christian Bassogog scored the second on the counter-attack in the dying seconds.

"We are very disappointed because I think we couldn't play our game. We didn't manage to do what we do best," Ayew said.
"We have to be honest, Cameroon deserved the victory. We didn't do what we had to do so we are very disappointed and there's no much to say.
"We just need to shut up, go home, work and prepare for the next two years."
Ghana will face Burkina Faso in a third-placed play off on Saturday in Port Gentil.
