Ayew saddened by lack of national team friendlies

Ghana Black Stars skipper Andre Ayew is disheartened that there were no friendly games for him and his peers during the international break.

Ayew says he is saddened by the development as he and his colleagues wanted to come together and start planning for the 2021 AFCON qualifiers.

“We are very disappointed because in the last two international windows we did not have any friendly games and we don’t know why,” Ayew told BBC Sport.

“After the disappointing round-of-16 exit from this year’s Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, We were hoping to use friendly matches to regroup and prepare for the qualifiers of the 2021 Nations Cup finals in Cameroon”.

Ghana will face South Africa, Sao Tome and Sudan in Group C of the 2021 AFCON qualifiers.
