According to the 1982 afcon winner and former captain of Ghana Black Stars, the expectations of Ghanaians were very high and this made his team put in their best to end Ghana's 37 years trophy drought, only to be stop by Tunisia in the round of 16 stage through a penalty shootout.

"Expectations were high. We really worked hard and put in our best. Unfortunately penalties can go either way and also Tunisia is a strong team. " Kwesi Appiah said. 

Speaking about the referee and his assistants performance on the day, Kwesi Appiah who is likely to loose his job said the referee's decision to disallow Ghana's first goal was bad and that he should go and watch the game again and judge it for himself.

"I think he should go and watch the video
again and judge it for himself. It was really
bad", Kwesi Appiah said.
