Players and technical team members of the triumphant Wafu 2017 Black Stars “B” team were at the Flagstaff House today to present the trophy to the President, Nana Akufo-Addo.
Ghana beat Nigeria 4-1 in the final on Sunday to win the 16-team competition for the second successive time.
The President of the Republic congratulated warmly the players, technical and management team of the Black Stars B Team for winning this year’s West African Football Union Cup “in excellent style”.
According to President Akufo-Addo, the success of the Black Stars B team has proven that football in the country is not on the decline, as many would want Ghanaians to believe.
“All of Ghana is very proud of your achievement. In fact, yesterday, the former President of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo was with me here at the Presidency. He began our meeting by firstly congratulating me,” the President added.
