Goal assesses the performances of the Black Stars in Monday's 1-0 loss to The Atlas Lions at the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

  • Joseph Jojo Wollacott Ghana

    Joseph Wollacott - 5.5/10

    In a game where he was barely seriously tested for the most part, the No.1 saw the first serious shot fly into his net although, it must be said, there was little he could have done about the situation. He did well to keep out a possible second goal with a good save late in the game but his ball distribution over the course of the 90 minutes left little to be desired.

  • Andy Yiadom Ghana

    Andy Yiadom - 5.5/10

    It was a decent game for the right-back who was strong in defence but, as anticipated, made few runs into the opposition area owing to the possible danger of Morocco’s wide men.

  • Baba Rahman Ghana

    Abdul Rahman Baba - 5.5/10

    The Reading left-back defended well and made a few runs into the opposition area but was let down by his final delivery.

  • Daniel Amartey Ghana

    Daniel Amartey - 6/10

    But for the goal, the Leicester City man did well to organise the backline as Morocco struggled to create any clear openings.

  • Alexander Djiku Ghana Afcon 2021

    Alexander Djiku - 6/10

    The Strasbourg centre-back did well in a partnership with Amartey as they kept the Moroccans at bay until the 82nd minute when Sofiane Boufal capitalised on a loose ball to fire in the winner.

  • Iddrisu Baba Ghana

    Mohammed Iddrisu Baba - 5.5/10

    The Real Mallorca player provided a good cover for Ghana’s backline, allowing Thomas Partey freedom to operate.

  • Mubarak Wakaso, Ghana & Percy Tau, Bafana Bafana, August 2021

    Thomas Partey - 5/10

    The Arsenal man failed to exercise dominance in midfield, possibly due to a lack of offensive support.

  • Mohammed Kudus Ghana

    Kamaldeen Sulemana - 5/10

    The Stade Rennes sensation was definitely not at his best as he was largely kept quiet by Achraf Hakimi.

  • Joseph Paintsil Achraf Hakimi Ghana Morocco Afcon 2021

    Joseph Paintsil - 6.5/10

    The Genk attacker brought Ghana closest to scoring with a second half curler; that was not surprising as he was the Black Stars’ brightest spot in attack.

  • Andre Ayew Jordan Ayew Ghana

    Andre Ayew - 4.5/10

    Ayew barely had an influence on the game in what was a quiet day for Ghana’s attack.

  • Jordan Ayew Ghana

    Jordan Ayew - 4.5/10

    Despite playing as Ghana’s target man, the Crystal Palace forward ended the game without a shot on target, summarising his bad day at the office in Yaounde.
