Ghanaian Vice President rallies Black Stars ahead of Portugal clash

Bawumia went further and told the players not to be intimidated and to play their hearts out.

Ghana's Vice President, Dr. Mahumudu Bawumia, encouraged the Black Stars ahead of their opening Group H fixture against Portugal on 24th November.

“The moment has come for the Black Stars to take on the World,” he said in a video showcasing his football skill set.

Bawumia went further and told the players not to be intimidated and to play their hearts out.


"We have a group of talented players who have been selected, and they cannot be intimidated by anyone.

I want to urge the Black Stars to go on and play their hearts out for Mother Ghana. We can stand the world. We have done it before, and we can do it again,”
he said.

Otto Addo's men will return to the tournament after missing the previous World Cup held in Russia. They are paired in Group H alongside Portugal, Uruguay and South Korea.

Under Addo, Ghana has convinced several players to swap allegiances after coming up through European youth systems (Tariq Lamptey and Iñaki Williams made their Ghana debuts over the last few months.)

 In Qatar, Addo will have to get the new arrivals to mesh with a few veteran core that includes Thomas Partey and André Ayew.
