President Akufo Addo, Ghana’s First Gentleman, has congratulated the under-20 national team on winning the 2021 African Cup of Nations.
The Black Satelites, who began the game slowly, advanced all the way to the Grand Finale, defeating Uganda by two goals.
The President used Twitter to share a screenshot of the Black Satellites with the caption
“Congratulations to the Black Satellites for winning Ghana’s 4th AFCON U-20 trophy. Thoroughly deserved victory, and they’ve made Mother Ghana proud. What a way to celebrate our 64th Independence Anniversary!! 1/2”
Kudos to the team, and I look forward to receiving the playing, technical and management teams to Jubilee House. 2/2
