“As you did in Algeria, we believe that you will do better here. The President is very keen to ensure that you perform to the highest standards. Sports is more of Diplomacy now so you are holding the Ghana flag here so your performance must be top notch.”
“The President has asked me to tell you that Ghana is the torchbearer of football in Africa and we want you to perform to that standard. We trust you because if I look at the calibre of players you have here I can see that you are ready for battle. I know the likes of Barnieh and what they can do.”
“Know that you are representing the 31 million Ghanaians here and we will all be looking forward to a good performance from you. We will all be supporting you and don’t be bothered about any form of intimidation.”
“We were first to won bronze at the Olympic Games so I trust that this team can do better. Play your game and enjoy the tournament”, Ambassador Effah-Broni.
