“After so many weeks of sacrifices, you guys are the blessed ones, the chosen ones. This journey did not start with 28 or 30 players. This journey started with lots of players and you know about it. This journey started with some colleagues of yours who are not here but through your hard work and the blessings of the Almighty God, you are here. And beyond today, you have a unique opportunity to make yourself, family and Ghana proud. President Simeon-Okraku said
“Being at the U20 world cup is the ultimate vision of our country and you have the responsibility to take Ghana there. Ghana wants to be at the U20 world cup and to be competitive but before that, we need to conquer WAFU and conquer Africa.
