Ghana’s Black Stars were recently mobbed by an ecstatic crowd in Winneba and Mankessim as the team made stops in there on their way to Cape Coast for the AFCON 2021 qualifying match against South Africa.
Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Ghana against South Africa is on Thursday, November 14, 2019, at 7pm at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.
The team first stopped in Winneba, fraternised with locals and gave out #BringBackTheLove T-shirts before repeating same in Mankessim.
The #BringBackTheLove campaign is an initiative by new Ghana Football Association boss, Kurt Okraku, to whip up support for the various national teams.
The initiative appears to have earned positive attention and made gains as locals came out to watch the Stars’ first training session at the Cape Coast Stadium later on Tuesday evening.

Meanwhile, RuQuan Brown aka ''Ru'', a multi-talented high school senior has made impressive gains after he was accepted into 24 colleges including 7 Ivy League schools and 16 full scholarships. Some of the schools include Howard, Georgetown, William & Mary, Cornell, Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Dartmouth, Army and Temple University to name a few.
Brown remains focused with a clear mission as he continues to make remarkable impact in the classroom, on the field, and within his community.
Becauseofthemwecan.com reports that the 17-year-old is using his pain to fuel every effort, scoring a 3.9 grade point average at the number one academic public school.
