Speaking via Facebook after Ghana’s 3-2 loss to Portugal at the World Cup in Qatar, Ghanaian president Nana Akufo-Addo, expressed pride in his team’s performance despite the loss, saying:
“Gutsy performance by the Black Stars in today’s match against Portugal. Very proud of the entire team. They live to fight another day, and have shown they have what it takes to mix it up against any team in the tournament. Looking forward to the next game against South Korea, and I urge all Ghanaians to rally strongly behind the team. I am confident we can qualify from this group. #GoBlackStarsGo.”
Ghana play South Korea on Monday before their final Group H meeting with Uruguay next Friday.
