Maha Ayew, the daughter of Ghanaian captain Andre Ayew, is said to have fallen to the ground following his missed penalty against Uruguay on Friday, December 2.
When Ghana had a chance to advance to the round of 16, goalkeeper Sergio Rochet stopped Andre’s shot. The 2022 World Cup will be held in Qatar.
However, Ghana ultimately lost 2-0 to the two-time world champions.
Ayew’s daughter passed out after his father missed a 12-yard field goal attempt, according to Fentuo Tahiru of Joy Sports.
But Black Stars captain Andre Ayew claims he is optimistic about the future of the team despite being frustrated with his missed penalty against Uruguay.

I missed the penalty…it’s difficult to take..we did not get it right.
I am very optimistic for the future.
I am sad but we will try and make it better,” he added.
