“Football has always united us as a nation, and this is no exception. We urge the national team to fight on and bring the Cup home.

“We wish the Stars well in their upcoming games, and also urge all Ghanaians to show commitment and support for them to achieve more laurels and continue to stand tall on the continent of Africa and beyond,” the statement added.
