The Black Satellites chose the big stage with global television audience to show their sympathy for the families of those killed following the raging inferno in their country’s capital Accra.

They wore the black armband to show solidarity with the people of the country who have been thrown  into mourning and crucially used the football tool to show their sympathy.

All the players of the national team and the country’s football federation have been thrown into mourning following the deaths in Accra.

At least 150 people were killed on Wednesday night in a blaze at a petrol station in the Ghanaian capital.

It is believed that many of the victims were sheltering from the incredible downpours that have been affecting the country over the last few days when the fire broke out.
