Not again: We’ve learnt from 2010 Final loss – Andre Ayew

Ghana’s Andre Ayew says the Back Stars are better placed to win the 2015 edition of the African Cup of Nations than they were 5 years ago.

Ghana lost by a goal to nil in the final of the 2010 edition in Angola, and will look to make things right against the Ivory Coast in a repeat of the 1992 final tomorrow.

“For the 2010 final, we had about 14 players from the U20 World Cup (of the previous year). In that final we were attacking and attacking, but we couldn’t score. We lacked experience,” Ayew recalled.

“But Sunday’s final will be a good one for us. When you get to the final, you need to do everything to win.”

The 25-year-old forward has shone at this competition, scoring three goals. He attributes this to confidence boosts from his team-mates and the coach.

“I have tried to raise my game because I have been given responsibilities both on and off the pitch. It is due to the group and the confidence from the coach,” he said.
