A former director of Asante Kotoko Kenedy Agyapong has praised Ghanaians for their wonderful display of patriotism during last Friday’s final World Cup qualifier against Zambia.

It was demonstrated in the massive support they gave the senior  national team against the Chipolopolo at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi two weeks ago.

He underlined the need to use sports, particularly football to unify the nation, saying, the ability of sports to clam tension was vividly displayed during the Ghana- Zambia game.

According to him, the commitment shown by Ghanaians before, during and after the match was inspiring, adding: “I was so proud to be a Ghanaian. I have known Ghanaians to love football, and their national teams, but this support were extraordinary.

“The support was all over the place from Ghanaians and we need such support to qualify for the World Cup in Brazil next year,” he added.

Kenpong also praised the government and the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, for their efforts in making the victory possible for Ghana.

Ghana beat Zambia 2-1 to top the group and qualify for the final play-off.

The Black Stars will play Egypt in a two-leg play-off for a place in the World Cup final.

    Phobians in Ghana,open your eyes.We all read in the news about some scouting agent looking for players and GFA chairman recommending Kotoko players.We read how many players from Kotoko were recommended by Nyantakyi to the president of TB Mazembe.The guy is using his position to transfer players of Kotoko and he has imposed on as Kotoko coaches to handle national teams and those little things go a long way to help Kotoko financially and intend give them a better edge than any team in Ghana financially.Until Nyantakyi is stopped from doing all this kind of things the Oak tree would still be weak and weaker.Mahatma Oto was the hottest player in Ghana but did Nyatakyi help secure him a contract.Thankx coach Dunkan for coming out with the truth.
