Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan was enthused with the reception the senior national team of Ghana received from the fans in Tamale upon their arrival on Wednesday.

Football fans have been indifferent towards the Black Stars, following the 2014 FIFA World Cup fiasco in Brazil.

It became evident when about 5,000 spectators turned up for their game against Rwanda at the Ohene Djan Sports Stadium, Accra.

The playing body of the Black Stars have on different platforms appealed to the fans for a change in attitude towards the Black Stars, but the situation appears to be worsening by the day.
