    I’m so proud of my Blackstars for I don’t know what to tell them. They did marvelously well and I say may God bless them so much for what they have done. And to my fellow Ghanaians, may God richly bless you all for your uncountless support you gave to the Blackstars in all season. Please try not discourage some of the Blackstars who made mistakes during the tournament. God bless you all and God bless Ghana.
