Message of Congratulations to Wa All Stars
Please pass on my own personal congratulations , along with those of the whole football family to Wa All Stars on their performance. A national victory is a wonderful occasion and an opportunity to draw satisfaction from a job well done.
I know that behind this success are the belief and effort of everyone involved. This is a true team victory, and all of you deserve to share in the accolades: the players and coach of course, but also the technical and medical staff and, not least, the loyal fans. The dynamism and commitment of the Wa All Stars team have enabled them to win this title.
Football is proving more than ever that it can transcend traditional boundaries to become a real driver of development. It enables players at all levels to develop their individual skills, tactical understanding and personal dynamism, while strengtheningt team spirit. Football truly is a schoolwork life and I am convinced that everyone , and in particular the young people of today, can be fit from playing football on both a social and personal level. That is why I urge them all in Wa All Stars to continue their work, leading the way on this path of success.
