The Black Stars of Ghana ghosted back into the country early on Thursday after exiting the 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) at the Round of 16 stage.
The four-time AFCON champions who were bundled out of the competition by Tunisia reportedly touched down at 02:00 am at the Kotoko International Airport.
Ghana lost 5-4 on penalties against Tunisia after the game ended in a 1-1 draw on Monday evening.

The contingent included coach Kwasi Appiah, deputy coach Ibrahim Tanko, goalkeepers trainer Richard Kingson, Technical Coordinator, Stephen Appiah, Kwadwo Asamoah, Felix Annan, Asamoah Gyan, Lawrence Ati-Zigi, Richard Ofori, Kwabena Owusu and Lumor Agbenyenu.
The team is usually welcomed at the airport with fanfare by the various supporters’ groups but their latest arrival was devoid of any happiness after their worst AFCON showing since 2006.
The Stars were hoping to end a 37-year trophy drought that has haunted the team since 1982.
