Vice President of Ghana, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, has urged the Black Stars to represent the country well when they take to the field in the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
The Black Stars are making a return to the world stage after being absent from the last edition which was held in Russia four years ago.
Ghana’s first game of the tournament being staged in Qatar is set for Thursday, November 24, against Portugal at the Stadium 974.
Ahead of the game, Bawumia has urged Otto Addo’s men to give their all without intimidation.
“The moment has come for the Black Stars to take on the World,” he said in a video on social media where he showed his skillset.
“We have a group of talented players who have been selected and they cannot be intimidated by anyone.
“I want to urge the Black Stars to go on and play their hearts out for Mother Ghana. We can stand the world. We have done it before and we can do it again.
“They should go out and emulate the historic deeds of their predecessors. God bless you all. You can do it.
“Go! Ghana! Go! Go! Black Stars! Go,” he ended.
Ghana’s first game is scheduled for a 16:00 GMT kickoff on Thursday with games against South Korea and Uruguay to follow.
