The President of the Ghana Football Association, Kurt Okraku, has called on Ghanaians to rally behind the Black Stars despite the embarrassing three-nil loss to Mali on Friday, October 09, 2020.
C. K Akonnor supervised his first match as the coach of the senior national team in an international friendly since his appointment in January 2020 and suffered a 3-0 defat to Mali in Turkey.
Mr. Okraku said he appreciates the high demands of Ghanaians of the Black Stars, but says the nation should support the team in both bad and good times.
He asserted that the game was to afford the new technical team the opportunity to assess the players before the November AFCON qualifier double-header against Sudan.
“I know that by way of results, as competitive as we are, it disappoint us”, he told Asempa FM.
“But the key essence is that is the platform to engage, to analyse and to see what is possible and what is not going into the future.
“We plead with everyone to be very supportive, I know Ghanaians love their national team.
“We want them to win every game, but we will come to that stage, we will be sure about the personnel to rely on in competitions.
“We need the prayers and support of everyone, football is a team sport, no man can do it alone. I’m very positive about the future of Ghana football.
“We need the support of everyone in good times and bad times.
“When the going is tough, we need you to be spiritually and physically behind the team so we can be able to go through the turbulence and to be victorious.”
Ghana will lock horns with Asian side Qatar on Monday to round up their international friendlies in Antalya, Turkey.
