The Ghana Football Association president, Kurt Okraku, has lauded his predecessor, Kwesi Nyantakyi, for guiding the Black Stars to three successive World Cups.

Under the ex-GFA boss, Ghana made it to three World Cup tournaments in 2006, 2010 and 2014 and Okraku said his predecessor deserves to be applauded.

According to him, it takes a lot of hard work for the national team to make it to the Mundial and if the former FA president had done it thrice on a roll then he must be commended.

“Let me say áyekoo’ to our former president, Nyantakyi who took Ghana to the World Cup in 2006, 2010 and 2014.

“If we understand what it means to be at the Mundial, we will give Kwesi Nyantakyi a standing ovation”, Kurt stated.

The Black Stars qualified for the fourth time after drawing 1-1 with Nigeria in Abuja last March to play in the FIFA World Cup tournament in Qatar.

They have been paired in Group H and they would be playing in the same group with Portugal, Uruguay and South Korea.
