The President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has heaped praise on the Black Satellites team for winning the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament.
The Ghana U-20 team last Saturday, posted a 2-0 win over the Hippos of Uganda in the final of the tournament hosted in Mauritania.
With the win seeing the team being crowned as Champions of the 2021 U-20 AFCON, it served as the perfect Independence Day present for Ghanaians.

“This is a proper occasion for me once again, on behalf of all Ghanaians to congratulate the Black Satellites on the splendid victory in winning the nation’s fourth U-20 Africa Nations trophy when they defeated Uganda by two goals to none on Sunday in Nouakchott, capital of the Republic of Mauritania.
“Ayekoo to the Black Satellites and to the technical and management team for the independents day gift. I look forward to receiving them at the Jubilee House later this afternoon after I am done with you to receive them this afternoon,” President Nana Addo said.
Meanwhile, the President has indicated that his government is committed to supporting sports and will ensure the country hosts a successful 2023 African Games.
