Ghana President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has audaciously predicted his country will win the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar .
President Nano Addo made this claim in his speech at the FIFA World Cup tour event in Accra Ghana .
Legendary French forward David Trezequet accompanied the World Cup trophy to Ghana for a two day tour of the West African country ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup scheduled to kickoff in Qatar this November .
Represented by his Chief of Staff , Frema Osei Opare , Nana Addo urged Ghanaians to ” throng the Accra Polo court to view the trophy and be part of history before we (Black Stars) finally bring the cup home on December 18.
As included in a report via Pulse Ghana, Nana Addo said “I am of the firm conviction that Ghana will not only participate in the competition but will make the whole nation and by extension the African continent proud, with a great performance.”
” I, therefore, want to urge all Ghanaians, in conclusion, to throng the Accra Polo Court to view the trophy and to be part of history, before we finally bring the cup home on 18th December. ”
” We, who were the first to gain our freedom and independence from colonial rule, will be the first to bring the World Cup to Africa.”
Ghana’s path to this historic claim will begin with a first group game against Portugal on November 28 at the Stadium 974 in Doha .
The Black Stars will take on South Korea in their second group game on December 2, before facing Uruguay in the final group game in a game President Nana Addo believes will give Ghanaians opportunity for revenge .
Ghana were denied an historic FIFA World Cup place in 2010 by Luiz Suarez famous hand ball in the Quarter final . Asamoah Gyan missed the resultant spot kick before the Black Stars bowed out after the ensuing Penalty shootouts .
” We have also had to wait for twelve (12) years to get revenge against Uruguay, and we assure them that, this time, the hand of Suarez will not save them against the Black Stars of Ghana. They are go down!! ” Nana Addo promised .
No African country has won the FIFA World Cup and Otto Addo’s Black Stars team will have to work the President’s talk on the pitch when the World gathers in Qatar to write their names in gold .
Qatar will kickoff the 2022 FIFA World Cup vs Ecuador on November 20, 2022 .
Ghana edged arch rivals Nigeria to reach the finals will attempt an historic African world cup triumph alongside other African representatives Cameroon , Senegal , Tunisia and Morroco .
The FIFA World Cup trophy will today Sunday September 4 be displayed at the Accra Polo court .
