Ghana started the bid to end its long trophy drought in the African Cup of Nations with a disappointing loss against Cape Verde at the Houphet Boigny Stadium in Abidjan.

The Black Stars conceded a late goal against the Islanders in injury time due to an apparent mistake by Monaco defender Mohammed Salisu.

His failure to clear his lines led to a mix-up with goalkeeper Richard Ofori which led to an open goal for Garry Rodrigues to score the winner for Cape Verde.

Netizens on X (formerly Twitter) have blamed this defeat squarely at the feet of the former Southampton defender.
