The President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has rallied support for the Black Stars as they enter their second group match in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2023 in Cote d’Ivoire.
After losing their first match against Cape Verde, Ghanaians have little hope about surviving in the tournament, but the President wants the masses to throw their weight behind the team.
In a Facebook post, he said the unalloyed support of Ghanaians is all Chris Hughton’s side needs.
“We go again tonight against Egypt. Let’s all rally behind the Black Stars. They need nothing but our unalloyed support. Go Black Stars Go!!!!”
Today’s game against Egypt is anticipated to be crucial since both sides will be fighting for their first win in the tournament. Egypt drew against Mozambique in their first game.
This will be the fifth encounter between Egypt and Ghana at the CAF Africa Cup of Nations. They have met three times previously in the group and once in the final, which Egypt won in 2010 (1-0).
The game will be hosted at the Stade Félix Houphouët Boigny at 8 pm.
