… as President urges team to win Cup

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has charged the Black Stars to win the African Cup of Nations tournament in Cameroon and bring the 40-year drought to an end.

The Stars take on Morocco’s Atlas Lions this afternoon in the opening game of Group C.

Sending a goodwill message to the team on the eve of the commencement of the tournament, the President goaded the Stars to go a step further to win their fifth African trophy, believing they have the quality to make it happen.

“We have to go a step further in the second places we recorded in 1992, 2010 and 2015 and bring the 40-year drought to an end.

“The task may be daunting, but it is certainly not insurmountable. I believe in the current crop of players; we have the talent to match any of the best teams on the continent,” he asserted.

The President urged the players to wear the jersey with pride and determination; be of one mind and spirit and be united on and off the pitch – whether chosen in the first eleven or not.

He appealed to Ghanaians to rally behind the team, no matter what, as Ghana seeks to become a force to reckon on the continent again.
