Accra - 2015 Afcon top scorer Andre Ayew has revealed that the pain of a second loss after Sunday’s encounter against Cote d'Ivoire placed him into an inconsolable mood, SuperSport reports.
The passion-filled Black Stars vice captain was part of the young Ghana team that lost the finals of the competition to Egypt five years ago at the Angola competition and says a second fate saw his emotions completely fail him as Cote d'Ivoire won the Afcon 9-8 on penalties.

Ayew scored three and provided two assists for Ghana’s 10 goals at the 2015 Afcon.For the latest on national news, politics, sport, entertainment and more follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page.
