Pressure mounts on C.K Akonnor as Ghanaians call for his head after South Africa defeat

C.K Akonnor

There is mounting pressure from Ghanaian on Black Stars coach c after Ghana’s 1-0 defeat to the Bafana Bafana of South Africa in the second game of the 2022 Qatar World Cup qualifier.

Ghana had a single shot on target the entire game with the closest Ghana went near the goalkeeper William’s goal was when Joel Fameyeh was tripped when he was through on goal.

The resulting free kick was fiercely struck by Wakaso Mubarak but the goalkeeper held firm without any trouble.

Under the guidance of C.K Akonnor as coach, Ghana has scored just 1 goal in its last 4 matches and 5 shots on target in last 4 games which is piss poor for a country of Ghana’s footballing abilities and history.

The first half ended 0-0 as Ghana would count themselves lucky as a Percy Tau header was wrongly flagged offside as the Al Ahly forward appeared to be onside.

Ghana came up a bit better in the second half but it was the Bafana Bafana who made it count as in the 83rd minute as Maritzburg United striker Bongokuhle Hlongwane cushioned a cross into the far corner to open the scores for South Africa.

After the defeat angry Ghanaians have taken to twitter and other social media platforms to demand the sacking of the former Kotoko, Hearts gaffer who has a woeful 40% win rate since taking over the job in January 2020 with Caleb Ekuban the only player to have scored for Ghana since C.K Akonnor took charge.
