The Black Stars on Thursday visited two chiefs in Tamale ahead of their game against Uganda
They first visited the Buipewura, who happens to be the Paramount chief of the Tame Traditional Area.
Although, the Buipewura wasn’t around his kinsmen welcome the Black Stars and told the team that they are urging them to score two goals in each half.
And the Kinsmen presented the Black Stars with Kola nut, which tradition demands and also on behalf of the Buipewura, presented 100 tubers of yams and one bull to the team.
Captain Asamoah Gyan on behalf of the Black Stars assured the kinsmen that they also make them proud by beating the Ugandans emphatically.
From the Buipewura they proceeded to the Dakpema chief. The Dakpema chief who was present urged the Black Stars to go for victory against the Black Stars.
The Minister of Youth and Sports who was with the Black Stars paid homage to the chief, before the Black Stars coach Avram Grant and Asamoah Gyan followed suit.
