Ghana's national football team, the Black Stars, is facing a challenging period following a disappointing performance in their recent international friendlies against Mexico and the USA, where they suffered defeats with scores of 2-0 and 4-0, respectively.
The team's lackluster displays have raised questions about the future of Head Coach, Chris Hughton, and the direction of the squad.
Ayew believes that the team is in a transition phase with a significant number of new and relatively inexperienced players.
Speaking at a press conference after the match against the USA, he acknowledged that inexperience played a pivotal role in their lack of success, stating, “We just need a bit more time; it's a new group, with a lot of new players, and most of the players are inexperienced, so it's not easy working with them.”
Despite the setbacks, Ayew assured Ghanaians that the players are committed to restoring the team's performance as they prepare for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers next month.
The 32-year-old footballer urged Ghanaians to rally behind the team as they strive for success in the near future.
The Black Stars are gearing up to kick off their 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers on November 13, 2023, with a home match against Madagascar.
Ghana is determined to secure a spot in the 2026 World Cup and aims to clinch victory in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, scheduled to take place in Ivory Coast. Jordan Ayew's plea reflects the team's determination to overcome their current challenges and achieve success in the upcoming competitions.
