Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, has made a rallying call to the senior national football team, the Black Stars, ahead of the crucial World Cup qualifying play-off against Nigeria on Friday.

The three-time World Cup participant is seeking another Mundial ticket since its last appearance in the 2014 tournament.

They will lock horns against Super Eagles in one of five first-leg African play-offs to determine Africa’s representatives to the FIFA World Cup in Qatar this year.

The nation is behind you, make us proud - Bawumia tells Black Stars

Nigeria has qualified for the world cup six times and wants a seventh opportunity.
