Ghana captain Andre Ayew is worried ahead of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

The Black Stars were inactive during the last two international FIFA breaks and Ayew feels this will affect the team negatively.

The West African giants will face Bafana Bafana of South Africa in their first 2021 AFCON qualifier on November 15, 2019 at the Accra Sports Stadium.

“We are very disappointed because in the last two international windows we did not have any friendly games and we don’t know why,” Ayew told BBC Sport.

Ayew is keen to help the Black Stars reach the finals following their disappointing 2019 AFCON finals campaign in Egypt.

“After the disappointing round-of-16 exit from this year’s Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt,” he added.

“We were hoping to use friendly matches to regroup and prepare for the qualifiers of the 2021 Nations Cup finals in Cameroon.”
