The Black Stars of Ghana's triumph over the Super Eagles of Nigeria have had a positive impact on the country despite the awful brutalisation of Ghanaian supporters in Nigeria yesterday to the extent that one CAF official was left to suffer a painful death.
Going into any battle, two things are at stake, a flawless victory and a painful defeat but in the case of the Lagos showdown, the second leg decider between the Black Stars of Ghana and the Super Eagles of Nigeria hit on a stumbling block for Nigeria
Ghana defeating the Super Eagles took away the joy out of Lagos and Abiola National Sports Stadium looking at at the over 60000 capacity of football fans whose expectation was to cheer the green and white team to ensure a massive victory but to no avail.
Whiles the damage was ongoing in Lagos, the Jubilee House was cheerful as exuberant Akufo Addo remained perplexed with regards to the gallant performance and attitude of Ghana Black Stars whom the football pundits rated as underdogs but out of perseverance found success in the outskirt of Lagos, Nigeria.
The whooping amount given to the country after sealing qualification is highly endeared by the country Ghana who have had it uneasy to finance most of it's projects and other things in relation to the fiscal policies
The Black Stars of Ghana gave their all to uplift the image of Ghana even though the team went along with inexperienced squad but in all success was chalked by the under par performing side of Ghana.
Coach Otto Addo and Houghton have done the nation more good than harm for sealing qualification to the world cup and the 12million Euros injection into the coffers of the nation Ghana would sustain the economy a bit if only the funds would be put into judicious use.
