thumbnail Hello,

The players are also billed to receive national honours…

The playing staff of Ghana's Black Stars are to receive US$20,000 each for their vintage performance at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

According to the president of the west African nation, Professor John Atta-Mills, each member of the technical bench and officials of the Ghanaian FA will also receive US$10,000 to be followed by national honours to the entire contingent soon.

The four-time African champions were the sole survivors for the host continent in the ongoing tournament, but Uruguay dashed their dreams in the last eight in a 4-2 penalty shoot-out.
“You did not win the World Cup but, through your performance, you carried high the flags of not only Ghana, but Africa,” President Mills said.

“Football brought all of us together. My brothers and sisters, there may be slight differences between us and let’s remember we have an ultimate goal.

“We are Ghanaians first and foremost. So even though we may disagree at the end of the day just as we did to support the Black Stars, let’s support all efforts we are being made to make Ghana a better place for us all,” he said.
