Malaba - Andre Ayew has lamented Ghana’s failure to convert their early chances in the 2-1 loss against Senegal on Monday, SuperSport reports.

Ayew gave Ghana a first half lead after converting a 14th minute penalty won by Christian Atsu. Senegal stopper Bouna Coundoul had fell the Chelsea attacker in his box.
