President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo met the “gallant” Black Stars team that has qualified for the Qatar World Cup by eliminating Ghana’s arch-rivals, the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
The Eagles were unable to fly to Qatar on Monday night and instead, the Black Stars shinned in Abuja on their way to Qatar in November.
Ghana drew 1:1 with Nigeria after Thomas Partey fetched the first goal in the 10th minute.
Nigeria found the equaliser 12minutes later through the spot-kick.
After a goalless draw in Kumasi on Friday, Ghana qualified ahead of Nigeria on the away goal rule.
On their return to Accra Wednesday dawn having left Abuja a few hours after the qualification, President Akufo-Addo invited the team to the Jubilee House Wednesday afternoon.
