Following a 1-1 draw after extra-time, the game was forced into penalties, which ultimately ended 5-4 in favour of the Carthage Eagles after Caleb Ekuban missed his kick.
Unsurprisingly, many took to social media to share their disappointment.
Wakaso genuinely weeping in the press conference, couldn’t hold back the tears as he received his Man of the Match award - the first time I’ve ever seen that reaction from a player ever. pic.twitter.com/rLo2nZ62at— Ed Dove (@EddyDove) July 8, 2019

Let's look for people and blame. Someone must be at fault for this woeful output in AFCON since 2006.

It hurts. Reason I stopped watching the black stars years ago😤— Caroline Sampson (@caroline4real) July 8, 2019
But we had so many chances at goal though. I am confused. #ekuban must hv seen something standing in the goal post before kicking the penalty maybe his village people showed up, he just handed keeper the ball 🤔😂🤔🤣😭😭😭🤔🤔🤔 #blackstars #afcon2019 #afcon— Juliet Ibrahim (@julietibrahim) July 8, 2019
