President Akufo-Addo meets Black Stars ahead of Ghana-Portugal clash

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.

Portugal and Ghana’s first encounter was in the group stages at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. Portugal emerged victorious after Cristiano Ronaldo fished out another goal for them.

Despite their two scores, Portugal was unsuccessful in their last three opening games of a FIFA World Cup tournament.

Black Stars, however, has 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.

Ghana was the only African country in that year to make it to the round of 16 and was eliminated after the match with Brazil.
