Hughton’s tenure yielded no victories in their three Group B matches, leaving them with a meager two points and third place. Even a last-gasp draw against Mozambique failed to revive their hopes, as Cameroon’s win over The Gambia sealed their fate.

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) took swift action, announcing Hughton’s dismissal and the dissolution of the Black Stars’ technical team. A future roadmap for the national team will be presented in the coming days.

The GFA’s swift action demonstrates their intent to address the team’s performance struggles and chart a new course for the Black Stars. With the search for a new coach and technical team now underway, Ghana’s focus will shift towards rebuilding and preparing for future challenges.
