Ghana captain John Mensah has apologised to fans after they were upset by Zambia in their Africa Cup of Nations semi-final.
The Black Stars lost 1-0 to Wednesday’s clash courtesy of a goal by substitute Emmanuel Mayuka after Asamoah Gyan missed a penalty in the first half.
“We are sorry for the whole of Ghana for what happened today,” Mensah said after the game, according to the BBC.
Ghana were favourites to reach the final, but were stunned by the underrated Zambians in Bata.
“It’s unlucky that we lost this game,” Mensah said.
“We promise them (the fans) we will come back strongly next year (in the 2013 Cup of Nations in South Africa).”
Ghana will play in the third-place playoff match against Mali on Saturday.
