The Black Stars arrived home Thursday dawn from Egypt after suffering early elimination from the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations. 

The contingent touched down at around 02:00am local time.

As expected, there were no fans at the Kotoka International Airport to welcome them back home after that calamitous campaign.

The four-time champions got knocked out 5-4 on penalties by Tunisia on Monday night after drawing 1-1 after extra-time.

The shock exit extended Ghana trophy since 1982 to 2021 when the tournament is hosted in Cameroon.

Ghana's recent run of misfortune at the Africa Cup of Nations continued on Monday when they were bundled out in the last 16 by Tunisia, condemning a side that once ruled African football to their earliest exit since 2006.

Ghana had won more Cup of Nations titles than any other country when they were last crowned champions in 1982 but their four trophies have since been surpassed by both Egypt (seven) and Cameroon (five).

Ghana had made it to the semi-finals at the six previous tournaments but came up short on each occasion, and the writing was on the wall once again in Ismailia after they had an effort ruled out by the referee and twice hit the woodwork.
