Clermont Foot 63 FC defender Alidu Seidu says it is the doing of the Allah that saw him represent his Motherland, Ghana at the highest competition on earth.
According to him, playing at the 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament in Qatar is the biggest gift football has ever given to him.
Nonetheless, the young defender is sad to not see the Black Stars team progress to the round 16 stages of the 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament in Qatar.
“I want to give glory to Allah for allowing me to represent the colors of Ghana. one of the greatest Gift football has given me.
“Sad the goal was not achieved but alhamdulillah. Thanks to everyone who supported me and the team”, Alidu Seidu after Ghana’s FIFA World Cup tournament exit in Qatar.
A 2-0 win for Uruguay in their Group H decider with Ghana prevented the Black Stars from enacting any sort of revenge for their quarter-final loss at the 2010 World Cup, but this pulsating victory for La Celeste at the 2022 edition came with a heavy price.
South Korea’s 2-1 win over Portugal in the corresponding group stage decider saw them leapfrog both Uruguay and Ghana late on, meaning they’ll progress to the last 16, and send both of these sides home despite Uruguay’s victory.
The build-up to the match had been dominated by Luis Suarez’s handball right at the end of extra-time in their 2010 knockout match. Asamoah Gyan’s miss proved fatal for Ghana 12 years ago, but captain Andre Ayew, the only remaining player from the 2010 squad, couldn’t avenge.
