Africa Cup of Nations: Ghana 2-3 Comoros

Ghana crashed out of the Africa Cup of Nations at the group stage after a shock 3-2 defeat to Comoros in which captain Andre Ayew was sent off.

Iran PressAfrica: AFCON debutants Comoros took the lead after four minutes through Ben Mohamed and things got worse for Ghana - who featured Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey - when Ayew was shown a red card for a lunge on the keeper, which was checked by VAR and confirmed.

Richmond Boakye and Alexander Djiku scored in the second half for Ghana to make it 2-2 but Ahmed Mogni claimed his second of the game with five minutes left to seal a famous win for Comoros.

The shock defeat for four-time champions Ghana sees them finish bottom of Group C and exit AFCON at the group stage for the first time in 16 years.

Comoros, who only became a FIFA member in 2005 and are ranked 132nd in the world, have earned their first AFCON win.
