Ghana ended the group stages with just a point from three matches, and for the first time since 2006 crashed out of the competition at group stages.

Comoros opened the scores in the 3rd minute through Ben Mohamed.

Ghana got their situation worsened after Captain Andre Ayew was shown the exit in the 23rd minute, thus ending the half with ten men.
