Caleb Ekuban’s miss proved to be Ghana’s undoing, as Tunisia netted all their penalties to emerged 5-4 winners.

However, President Akufo-Addo has consoled the team, wishing them better luck in future tournaments.

In a Twitter post, President said he was gutted by the Black Stars’ loss, but believes the team will bounce back stronger.

“Like most Ghanaians, I am gutted by the exit of the Black Stars at AFCON 2019. I wish the team better luck next time. I am confident they will bounce back even stronger, and make all of us proud once again,” he wrote.
