Australian High Commissioner backs Black Stars ahead of Ghana-Portugal clash

The Australian High Commissioner to Ghana, Her Excellency Berenice Owen-Jones says the Black Stars of Ghana have a good chance of lifting the 2022 World Cup trophy.

According to the Ambassador, the good spirit in the camp of the Black Stars and the enthusiasm of the entire country will go a long way to contribute to the much-needed results.

“Ghana has got enthusiasm. The whole country is behind the Black Stars so who knows? It’s my patriot duty to say Australia has got every chance. But it’s also my diplomatic duty to say the Black Stars have a pretty good chance too,” H.E Owen-Jones said.

Ghana is facing Portugal in their opening game at the ongoing World Cup championship in Qatar today.

The Black Stars have qualified for four FIFA World Cup tournaments; 2006, 2010, 2014, and 2022. In 2006 they were the only African side to advance to the second round of the 2006 FIFA World Cup and were the sixth nation in a row from Africa to progress beyond the group stages of the World Cup.

Meanwhile, President Akufo-Addo is in Qatar to meet the Black Stars ahead of their opening game against Portugal in the FIFA World Cup championship.

The President visited the team’s hotel to motivate them before their attendance at Stadium 974 later today at 4:00 pm.
