Oswald Okaitei, a poet and an ardent supporter of the national senior football team of Ghana, the Blacks Stars, has written a poem to urge the Black Stars players to bring home the trophy in this year’s African Cup of Nations (AFCON) being held in Egypt.

Oswald in the poem bemoaned Ghana’s inability to take any AFCON trophy for many years and wished that the current players worked hard to bring home the trophy to rekindle the spirits of their numerous supporters back home and abroad.

 

Below is the poem

 

Go Black Stars,

Go and glow; go Black Stars and score the goals!
