- The Black Stars returned from their failed AFCON 2019 campaign on Thursday

The Black Stars arrived in Ghana from their unsuccessful 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON 2019) tournament on Thursday, July 11, 2019.
With the teams early exit from the tournament and their landing at the Kotoka International Airport at dawn, there was no fanfare.
But there was one special person at the airport, Maha Ayew, the wife of Abedi Pele, Ghana's legendary footballer.
Mrs Ayew was there to pick up her boys, captain Dede Ayew and Jordan Ayew, who had his best ever tournament for Ghana in Egypt.
In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh, the mother of the two stars was spotted waiting in a black Toyota Land Cruiser for the arrival of her boys.
Upon their arrival, the mother met Dede and Jordan who were in the company of midfielder Mubarak Wakaso.
After hugging Dede in a very emotional moment, Maha beckoned Wakaso and Jordan who were in tow to come for their hugs.
It was such an emotional video watching the mother and her sons.
As earlier reported by YEN.com.gh, the Black Stars were eliminated from the AFCON after losing to Tunisia on penalties in the round of 16.
The game ended 1-1 after extra-time and the Black Stars missed one of the first five penalty kicks while the Tunisians scored all of theirs.
Their defeat broke many hearts and Wakaso himself was spotted weeping in a photo after receiving the man of the match award on the night.
