The President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi, has mentioned the need for massive support for the Black Stars, as they take on the Cranes of Uganda in Friday’s 2018 World Cup qualifier to be played at the Tamale Sports Stadium.
Support for the Black Stars from Ghanaians has been low since the team’s abysmal performance at the Brazil 2014 WC, further exaggerated by the ‘feud’ between the football association and its sector ministry.
After their first training session at the Accra Sports Stadium, Nyantaki said: “I’m making an appeal to all Ghanaians to rally behind the team and offer them the needed support, we need people to fill the stadium on Friday.
“So I’m using this medium to appeal to Ghanaians who are around Tamale to troop to the stadium and offer their unflinching support to the team in their drive to qualifier for the World Cup.”
The Black Stars will depart for Tamale on Wednesday, October 5, as they are expected to pay a courtesy call on chiefs of the region ahead of the World Cup qualifier.
