So proud of you guys, you did your best – Michael Essien congratulates Black Stars



Ghana legend Michael Essien says he’s proud of the Black Stars players for a spirited fight at the 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament in Qatar.

Despite Ghana taking an early shower at the World Cup in Qatar, the former Ghana star has applauded the Ghana players for their effort at the World stage.

Essien, who played at the 2006 and 2014 world cups in Germany and Brazil believes the players did their best and lives to fight another day.

“So proud of you guys you did your best, we live to fight another day heads up boys”, he wrote on social media.

Ghana lost 2-0 in their final Group H game against the South America side which cost them a place in the next stage of the 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament.

Uruguay’s unfruitful pursuit for a third goal against Ghana, in view of South Korea beating Portugal, 2-1, sealed their tear-jerking fate – they were going home together with the West Africans.

The last time the two had met was on Friday, 2 July 2010, in Johannesburg, South Africa, where again Ghana misplayed a penalty – prompted by a handball by Suarez – and forfeited the glorious position of being the first Africans to make it to the semi-finals of the global game.
