Ghana players dedicate win to Annan


The Ghana players have dedicated their hard-fought 2-1 Africa Nations Cup quarter-final win over Tunisia to bereaved teammate Anthony Annan.

The Black Stars wore black armbands as a sign of respect to Madam Sophia Sampson, the mother of Annan, who died on Thursday evening.

Annan played in full throttle in his usual central midfield role despite the emotional situation he was facing. Captain John Mensah says the win is a befitting parting present to the Annan family.

“We dedicate this victory to Anthony Annan, especially his mother, because we all know he lost his mother when we were preparation for a tough game like this,” Mensah said.

“So we dedicated this win to him (Annan) and the whole of Ghana as well.” The Black Stars left Franceville on Monday for Bata, Equatorial Guinea, where they play Zambia in Wednesday’s semifinal.
