Ex-Ghana President John Agyekum Kufour wants the Black Stars to be fully fit for the upcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament in Qatar next month.
The former Ghana President believes that the team will be able to perform well at the 2022 FIFA Mundial when the players are physically fit.
Ghana will play against European giant Portugal before coming up against South Korea in Group H four days later after the first game before the highly anticipated Uruguay game on December 2nd.
Addressing the Ghana FA delegation at his residence, the former Ghana leader was of the opinion the Black Stars should not be walkovers at the mundial.
“We must be physically strong at the World Cup because in 2006, the Black Stars performed better because of the strength of the team, you look at the captain, Stephen Appiah and then characters like Sulley Muntari, you can’t just push Sulley down. The Asamoah Gyan’s, and the Essiens were physically fit”
“So one thing I pray you would ensure they go to the pitch physically fit to battle with other countries. We shouldn’t be walkovers, so we must be strong, smart and have stamina and then towards goal, we must work as a team, single purpose team to hit into the post”
“When you do that I’m sure you will come away with flying colours. So you have all my blessings, and prayer. I pray that it shouldn’t be only first round, they should continue to quarter and semifinals. The nation awaits good news from the team” he said.
