Ghana suffered a humiliating group-stage exit at the Africa Cup of Nations after the four-time champions were beaten 3-2 by debutants Comoros.

However, Mogni tapped in his second in the 85th minute to inflict Ghana’s first group-stage exit since 2006.

The result in Group C will go down as one of the biggest shocks in Nations Cup history as Comoros scored at the finals for the first time and then went on to record their maiden victory.


Meanwhile, in the other game, Morocco drew 2-2 with Gabon in one of the games of the Africa Cup of Nations so far as both sides progressed from Group C.


The Atlas Lions fell behind in the first half as Gabon’s Jim Allevinah slid past the onrushing keeper.


Morocco’s equaliser from the penalty spot by Sofiane Boufal after 74 minutes sparked a thrilling finale.


First, Gabon forced Nayef Aguerd into scoring an own goal before Achraf Hakimi curled home a free-kick.

    • @ SD Special Delivery Jones, can you please tell us where and how Ghana is better, from goalkeeper who is an EFL league two (ala England 4th divisipn) to Andre Ayew who is playing in a retired league or the Arsenal guy. We look forward to reading from you.

      Bros form a club and employ the white man, for God sake Nigeria is not Egypt nor Ghana.one A country will win the Nation cup not two, so if your winner is out pray next time they might do better.

      Yeye useless man , Ghana better pass Nigeria under Rohr nah?..If it is Super Eagles of Rohr, rest assured they will still beat us , after all Madagascar and CAR beat us under that 419 coach !!..A coach so clueless that he doesn’t know his first eleven after 6 years , a coach so corrupt that he only uses those that oil his palms, no fight for a shirt or willingness to excel amongst his players cos they are sure of thier status in the team .I pray he retires peacefully and allow his heartless followers like you not to commit suicide!! ..Thank God we are seeing the type of Super Eagles we always dream of – dominant in games , sure of goals and very entertaining!!

    Writings on the wall for Super Eagles, Guinea Bissau must have been motivated seeing these results. I’m expecting a tough match and I hope these guys put up a fine outing. Garnering 9 points will add another rank to our fear factor, we need to intimidate whoever we’re meeting at the round of 16.

    There are no small teams in this AFCON, a lot of shocking results still yet to come.

    • Douglas john ufuoma 2 years ago

      I don’t see EG defeating us, the highest they can get is draw that is if worse come to worse know matter who the coach features. Eguavoen will not himself down, not now, and the boys are ready to do just tomorrow

    • Douglas john ufuoma 2 years ago

      GB I mean

  • Ololo 2 years ago

    I feel for Algeria at the moment.. How will they defeat ivory coast.. Comoros has reminded us again that any thing is possible in Africa.. Those that didn’t take their first two games seriously should be shivering by now.. I wish super eagles well come tomorrow

  • KENNETH 2 years ago

    With all there training tour in dubai, this is the best they can give us. This is just an overhyped Ghanaian team. I hope the rest of the big teams will go out. Some of them have just being rubbish. Senegal was just lucky today. With all the noise about all there stars, they have been pathetic. Still don’t know why the penalty wasn’t given

    • Greenturf 2 years ago

      @Kenneth..true wished that penalty wasn’t given.It came at the death just exactly at the end of the additional 5 minutes.
      Zimbabwean fans and players must be heartbroken,I felt sorry for them.
      Had Zimbabwe avoided that penalty call Senegal probably would be on their way home by tomorrow.
      But here they are as group leaders going to the next round,fortunes could smile on them from the next stage.
      Some teams start playing at the knockout stages and some who shown at the group stages may fall like a pack of cards early at the knockout stages.
      Football is strange and this things happens which anyways is the beauty of the sports.
      I hope our super eagles sustain there good displays so far and finish tops because only the trophy will be good enough nothing less.

      • KENNETH 2 years ago

        I was actually referring to the penalty that wasn’t given to Malawi today, if that was upheld, Senegal was out. They have been unimpressive in the tournament. You can see the zeal in the eyes of the smaller teams. They came here to make a point.

  • Douglas john ufuoma 2 years ago

    This is a big lesson to those who think aggressive football can win you a game, and those who believe the national team should be a place to expose players or skin colour determine a good coach. Football has grown more than the stage were we have walk over teams, I pray and hope we learn from this nations cup to start doing the right thing

    • Marvelous 2 years ago

      Nations cup is not a tournament use for testing players. Is for the strongest and experience players. That’s why a coach should not invite players base on skin colour, ethnicity, bribery or sentimental feelings of fans.

      That’s why I laugh at those who use to get angry with Rohr for not inviting this and that

      • The big lesson here that no one is mentioning is that Ghana, Egypt and Algeria are suffering because there are no new talents they have discovered since the last AFCON.
        Nigeria is lucky we employed Rohr to build a new younger and versatile team.
        If we had relied on some player suggestions like Simy Nwankwo, Joel Obi and such others. Our case might be similar.

        What we are seeing at AFCON is a celebration of pace, strength, ruggedness and quick mental alertness brought by debutante and young teams.

        That is African football. Just to name a few players Ghana had that are over aged are Andre Ayew 32 years old, Jordan Anew 30 years old,Thomas Partey 28 years old and so on.

        At this age, they can’t run much. The same with Tunisia, Egypt and Algeria.

        However at the World Cup level. This African ruggedness, pace and shooting at range will be dealt with by teams that defend with space. From the attack through the midfield and defence.

        Short passes,refereeing and central play will break most African teams at the World Cup

        Our domestic league is poor, if our domestic league is okay, we can invite players from the league. It is the domestic league that is supposed to provide a springboard for the player to showcase and market his talent.

    If that was Nigeria now being humiliated and disgraced like those bad minded jealous ne’er do goods of ghanaland, you would have seen them celebrating in accraland and all their other bad belle towns and villages, even if they also lose, they don’t care, their joy is in Nigeria losing and being humiliated but now just observe how apart from this (my) post, there is not a single other post from any Nigerian laughing or happy at their loss and huge humiliation.
    Shame on the black belles of Ghanaland! lool!
    See as Comoros open bad belle yansh for public! looool!
    Let me hear anything from another ghan man about our football and that ghan man will hear wein!

    Ghana did not CEDIS coming!
    The big football nation Ghana came out playing on the front foot. Now their only worry is that the plane that will be taking them back home should be “BIG ENOUGH” to accommodate all the players and the coaching crew.
    I thought Ghana played ok. Although their movement was a bit sluggish, as if they had just eaten generous amounts of banku. Their defense was the main problem. Not as solid as Ghana defenses usually are. And the red card to Andre affected them as well. I don’t get why Andre was sent off. He had a right to go for the ball. It was a 50-50 challenge. Anyway, the ref decided to end his Afcon prematurely after consulting VAR, and that is that about that.
    If Comoros make it to the knockout rounds, the big nation that will be playing them had better sit up. Underrate any team at this Afcon, and you will regret it.
    Talking about the Malawi-Senegal game, we saw what I will call DAYLIGHT ROBBERY IN BAFOUSSAM. The penalty awarded to Malawi in the 73rd minute after some enterprising play was rescinded in dramatic fashion, again after the ref consulted VAR. It looked like a clear penalty, and the Malawi players sunk to their knees in disbelief after the ref ‘s decision. They all looked like little kids who’s lunches had been stolen. Malawi should have been awarded that penalty, and they likely would have beaten Senegal if that happened. My guess is someone somewhere was not ready to see Senegal lose today. Not to Malawi anyway.
    Going forward, we need to be really cautious about this VAR of a thing. If used with integrity, it’s great for football. But I’m beginning to question the integrity of the VAR officials at this tournament. I may be wrong about this, but something seems really fishy about some of the VAR decisions we’ve seen so far.
    My candid advise to Eguavoen and company is to try as much as possible to avoid situations were we find ourselves at the mercy of VAR officials, especially as we now approach the knockout stages.

  • I tell you bro… Buahahaha
