President Akufo Addo has declared that Ghana will be the first African nation to win the coveted World Cup in Qatar.
The president made this declaration whilst delivering a speech when given some FIFA delegates led by legendary retired French footballer, and 1998 World Cup winner, David Trezeguet, visited the Jubilee house to present the World Cup to the present as part of their world wide tour.
The FIFA delegates were escorted by the Chief of Staff, Frema Osei Opare.

“I, therefore, want to urge all Ghanaians, in conclusion, to throng the Accra Polo Court to view the trophy and to be part of history, before we finally bring the cup home on 18th December. We, who were the first to gain our freedom and independence from colonial rule, will be the first to bring the World Cup to Africa.”
