President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo paid a courtesy call on the Black Stars at their training base in Addis Ababa on Saturday, November 17 ahead of their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations [AFCON] qualifier against Ethiopia on Sunday.

The President [Akufo-Addo] is in the Ethiopian capital for the Africa Union [AU] summit but, as the chief supporter of the Black Stars, the President decided to take time off his official assignment to visit the players and inspire them ahead of the game.

The Black Stars are currently occupying the third spot on the Group F table having played two games less due to the cancellation of a two-leg qualifiers against Sierra Leone in October.

Today’s match at the Bahir Dar stadium is a must win for the Black Stars as a lose could hamper their chances of qualification to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
