Ghana Football Association (GFA) has thanked the general public for the unflinching support which ensured the Black Stars recorded victory over their Angolan counterparts at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi, Thursday.
The Black Stars who arrived in Kumasi on Wednesday, received a massive support at the Baba Yara stadium on the matchday as they recorded a hard-fought win against the Palancas Negras.
A stoppage time goal by substitute Antoine Semenyo in the 96th minute, was enough for the Stars to record a 1-0 win to lift them to top Group E with 7 points.
They travel to Luanda, Angola on Monday, March 27, 2023, for the return fixture.
The GFA, in its acknowledgment, thanked all and sundry who played various roles in the successful hosting of the match and the incredible support from the fans and students who thronged the stadium to support the Black Stars to victory.
“First and foremost, we would like to thank the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, for offering his wise counsel and support. The government, through the Ministry of Youth and Sports, ensured that the Black Stars preparation for the match was smooth which massively helped in the hard-fought win.
“Last but not the least, we would also like to thank the National Sports Authority for their effort in putting the game together,” the GFA acknowledged.
The FA observed further that such collective efforts will continue to play an important role in keeping the Black Stars moving in a positive direction.
