Ghanaians, if not all, are highly elated over the Black Stars qualification to the FIFA World Cup finals in Qatar this year after edging out Nigeria, but the seeming most relieved person is the Ghana President of the Ghana Football Association, Kurt Edwin Simeon-Okraku.
The FA Boss has has taken to social media to express how relieved and excited he is as Ghana achieves what, for now, would be seen as the biggest football achievement of the national team under his administration since he assumed office as the FA Boss in October 2019.
Ghana qualified to the World Cup for the fourth time in the country’s history, and though the junior national teams have won trophies and medals under the leadership of Kurt Okraku, the Black Stars’ qualification to the World Cup for now, remains his biggest achievement with the senior national men’s team after a disappointing display at the 2021 AFCON in Cameroon.
After the Black Stars qualification to Qatar was confirmed on Tuesday evening, Kurt took to Twitter to react to the achievement.
“IT IS FINISHED!!!”, he wrote via his official twitter handle.
Black Stars will have a new substantive coach for the tournament proper, likely to be Chris Hughton, who is currently the interim Technical Adviser of the team, but Otto Addo’s confirmation as the substantive coach to take Ghana to the World Cup cannot be completely ruled out.
