Glo urges Black Stars to consider every match as the final
The Board and Management of Glo Mobile Ghana, official sponsor of the senior national team, the Black Stars has sent a message of goodwill and encouragement to the players and technical handlers of the team in South Africa, urging them to remain focused and treat each of the remaining games as the final.
The message said, having followed the performance of the Black Stars so far, Glo was delighted to observe that the team has now fully warmed itself up into the thick and thin of the tournament, as they demonstrated in the precision with which they dealt with the challenge from Niger and the 2 – 0 victory over Cape Verde.
'As a sponsor and supporter of the national team, we at Glo take note of the team's strenuous preparations for this tournament and the gradual, but impressive buildup and revival of its winning spirit in the four matches the Stars have played so far; we are left with no doubt at all that the Black Stars will bring home Ghana's much awaited fifth African nations trophy,' said the statement signed by John Vasikaran, Head of Business at Glo Mobile Ghana.
'All we ask is that all players and the technical handlers remain focused on the big mission of annexing the Nations Cup for the fifth time; but in order to achieve this, it is important that you (Black Stars) tackle each of the remaining games as if it is the very final match of the tournament,' the message pleaded.
Glo Mobile has sponsored the Ghana Black Stars since 2008 along with Ghana's Premier League, of which the African telecommunications giant is the headline sponsor.
Glo only recently presented a cheque for over US$2,000,000 (two million US dollars) to the Ghana Football Association in fulfillment of the company's pledge to support the Black Stars and promote the development of football in Ghana.
