Akufo-Addo Flies Commercial To Cheer Black Stars At Qatar
President Akufo-Addo has been spotted aboard a commercial flight en route to Qatar to cheer on the Ghana Black Stars ahead of their opening game against Portugal in the FIFA World Cup. The President, who flew first class with his entourage, is expected to meet and motivate the technical team and the playing body
before Thursday’s opener. This is a departure from the President’s usual trip on chartered private jets as the country faces an economic turmoil. The Black Stars are in group H alongside Portugal, Uruguay, and South Korea. Ghanaian soccer fans are looking forward to Thursday’s clash against Portugal, one of the teams tipped
by pundits to make it to the round of 16 from the group. Soccer fans are looking forward to a revenge performance at least against Uruguay. The South American country denied the Black Stars progression to the Semifinals of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa as a result of a deliberate goal line handball
clearance by Louis Suarez. The Ghana-Portugal game is one that is highly anticipated, and the hope is that the President’s visit will spell a good omen for the Black Stars as they face Christiano Ronaldo’s Portugal.
