Former President John Dramani Mahama has joined the many Ghanaians congratulating the Black Stars for a job well done at Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja.

On Tuesday evening, the senior national team led by head coach, Otto Addo, secured a spot at the World Cup tournament after beating the Super Eagles of Nigeria. The game ended with a 1:1 scoreline. However, Ghana qualified based on the away goal rule.

Thomas Partey opened the scoring in the 10th-minute of the game after sending in a thunderous strike from outside the penalty box to give Ghana the lead, but William Troost-Ekong equalised for the home side.

Despite several attempts from Nigeria in the second half, there was no goal to separate the two sides as Ghana secured qualification on the away goal rule.

In reaction, the former President, while showcasing his patriotism, congratulated the team, stating that “Yes, we made it. Go Black Stars.”

Mr. John Mahama also prayed that the “Black Stars shine even brighter in Qatar.”

The Facebook post by the former President also shared a footage in which a brass band rendition of the national anthem is played.

Meanwhile, President Akufo-Addo has lauded the Black Stars over their win in the second leg of the World Cup Qualifier.

He stated that the team has made the nation proud with this victory.

“Warm congratulations to the Senior National Football Team, the Black Stars… for qualifying for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. I am very proud of the team’s exploits. They have made the entire nation proud,” he tweeted.
