Let’s believe in our Black Stars, we can win – John Mahama

Former President John Dramani Mahama has urged citizens to believe in the senior national team, the Black Stars, in their chances of winning the 2021 African Cup of Nations (AFCON).

The Black Stars are currently fighting in Cameroon to end a 40-year AFCON drought, but they appear to be struggling to win all three points.

The team suffered a humiliating setback in their first Group C match against Morocco, then on Friday, January 14, the Black Stars, led by captain Dede Ayew, drew with the Panthers of Gabon at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium.

John Mahama used his Facebook page to rally support for the Black Stars ahead of the match. He also stated that, despite being the underdogs in the tournament, Ghana has a chance to win the AFCON championship.

“Let us remember that we’ve been here before as we face Gabon in our second game of this African Cup of Nations Tournament. We overcame a similar hurdle in 2015, thanks to the grace of God, proper inspiration from the government and Ghanaians, the Ghana Football Association, the technical team, and the playing body. We had a fantastic season and made it all the way to the finals.

I’m confident we’ll be able to accomplish it again! Let us put our faith in our Black Stars. We may be underdogs, but we have a chance to win. Parts of his post read, “Go Black Stars!”

After the turmoil that erupted between the two sides at the end of the 90 minutes plus added time on Friday, Black Stars player Benjamin Tetteh received a red card.

On Tuesday, Ghana will face Comoros in a game that will determine whether they advance to the next round of the competition. The Black Stars will advance to the sixty-first round with a win.
