Veteran Sports journalist, Kwabena Yeboah could not restrain himself and his emotions altogether after Ghana’s captain Dede Ayew missed a crucial penalty game against Uruguay at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Ghana’s first dangerous moves in the Uruguayans’ territory resulted in a penalty in the 19th minute
Although the move by Kudus appeared to be offside, referee Daniel Siebert instead gave Ghana a penalty after consulting with the video assistant referee. Andre Ayew, the team captain, offered to take the kick for the Black Stars.
Unfortunately, the Uruguayan goalkeeper went in the right direction to stop Ghana Dede’s sluggish kick which broke the hearts of all Ghanaians and brought a sense of déjà vu.
In the aftermath of Andre Ayew’s missed penalty in the game, Kwabena Yeboah who was in the studios with John Painstil and Damba as his panellists, lost it as he wept, probably signally a bad omen for the Stars after the miss.
