Mohammed Polo, a revered figure in Ghanaian football history, has lauded the Black Stars for their remarkable determination in securing qualification for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
In their final Group E match at the Baba Yara Stadium, the Black Stars displayed resilience by overcoming a one-goal deficit to defeat the Central African Republic.
This victory secured Ghana’s 10th consecutive AFCON berth, with the tournament set to take place in Ivory Coast next year.
During an interview with Accra’s Radio Gold, the 1982 AFCON champion commended the team for their unwavering spirit.
He remarked, “They played very well, this is what we are looking for, this is what we are expecting them to do and I think they showed the sort of identity of Ghana football of old,” he said.
“For them to come up from a goal down with that sort of confidence, though we are playing at home.
“I think the pressure too was on them but they were able to do exactly what they were supposed to do.
“I think it is a plus, we are getting somewhere,” he added.
On October 12, Ghana will learn the identities of their AFCON group stage opponents.
