The Black Stars of Ghana suffered a shocking defeat against Comoros on matchday two of the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers on Tuesday, November 21.
The Coelacanths claimed all three points at home to go top of Group I having already beaten Central African Republic in their first game.
Antoine Semenyo should have given Ghana the lead in the opening six minutes of the game but the Bournemouth forward’s effort went into the side net.
Jordan Ayew also came close to putting Ghana in front but his header from six yards out went just wide of the Comoros post.
Myziane Maolida went on a solo run after picking up the ball in the midfield before beating Richard Ofori in the penalty box to open the scoring.
The 43rd-minute strike gave the home side the advantage heading into the break.
After the recess, Chris Hughton introduced Mohammed Kudus who replaced Andre Ayew in the starting lineup.
Back-to-back chances for Semenyo and Inaki Williams in the early stages of the second still couldn’t find the back of the net.
Substitute Majeed Ashimeru tried his luck from a long way out to catch the goalkeeper by surprise but failed to get his attempt on target.
Inaki was handed a late chance at goal from an Abdul Fatawu Issahaku cross but his header failed to trouble the goalkeeper.
Despite their late fight to get the equaliser, Chris Hughton’s men were never going to draw level with the game going on to end in defeat for them.
The win sees Comoros go top of Group I after two wins in two games while Ghana stay on three points.
