The Ghana Football Association (GFA) would like to put on record our sincere appreciation to all those who played various roles in the successful hosting of the match between the Ghana Black Stars and their Angolan counterparts at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.
First and foremost, we would like to thank the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, for offering his wise counsel and support.
The government, through the Ministry of Youth and Sports, ensured that the Black Stars preparation for the match was smooth which massively helped in the hard fought win.
We also want to thank our sponsors and partners for continuously investing in the team.
Last but not the least, we would also like to thank the National Sports Authority for their effort in putting the game together.
The various religious bodies from Christians, Muslims and Traditionalists all supported the team with prayers for which we are thankful.
The media was extremely vital to the success of the team as the wall-to-wall coverage helped to secure the massive turnout during Thursday’s match and for that we are grateful.
We also want to recognize the incredible support of the fans and students who thronged the stadium to support the Black Stars to victory.
Such collective efforts will continue to play an important role in keeping the Black Stars moving in a positive direction.
