“We made some errors, and they punished us for that. The last two goals from Portugal were so quick we could not recover, but we have always survived difficult conditions and we would come back good,” he explained.

Ayew, on the other hand, stated that they would be able to change their fortunes in the next game, and that they had always managed to come out of difficult situations. In the meantime, Ghana will play South Korea in their second group game on Monday, November 28.
