“This journey started some months ago with the game against South Africa and we exited this premises as victors. Tomorrow all of us have an opportunity to continue with that success story.”
“I believe we have enough quality here, to make us proud tomorrow. I know you guys have sacrificed a lot but tomorrow is the day to show to the world that your sacrifice means a lot. It is possible and tomorrow let’s go onto the pitch and fight.
“We have no bullets, but we have our feet, we have our heads. Let’s go onto the pitch and fight and let’s make history together. Thank you so much. I wish you guys the best of luck and may Almighty God see us through tomorrow [Thursday],“ President Simeon-Okraku added.
