Ahead of the game, Akrobeto visited the team during one of their training sessions at the Baba Yara Stadium.

A video of Akrobeto's visit excited the Black Stars players, including West Ham United's Mohammed Kudus, Dede Ayew, Baba Rahman, and Richard Ofori.

To show their reverence for the ace actor, Kudus and other stars got up to greet Akrobeto, with Dede Ayew embracing him.

But unlike many colleagues, Jordan Ayew looked indifferent about Akrobeto's presence at the training session.

Sitting on the bench, the Crystal Palace forward seemed focused more on his phone than the actor's presence. His behaviour sparked a lot of bashing online.

Speaking in a video on UTV's Instagram, Akrobeto indicated that he had met and interacted with Jordan before all the others, hence the player's behaviour.

According to him, Jordan was the first person he met at the Black Stars camp because he was not training with the rest of the team.

"Some people were saying Jordan Ayew did not get up to greet me. Please, please, he was the first person I talked to when I got there.
He was not training with the rest of the team and was sitting alone so I was able to talk to him for about five minutes before the rest of the squad came and I greeted all of them.
I had talked to him already so there was no need for him to get up to greet me. I beg those saying it that way that it is totally wrong. All of them were happy and cheerful for my visit. Well done, Black Stars," he said.
