Minister of Youth and Sports Isaac Asiamah has called on Ghanaians to support the home based Black Stars as they take on Burkina Faso in the first leg of their CHAN qualifying double header.

The first leg tie is scheduled to kick off at 3pm on Sunday at the Baba Yara Stadium with the reverse encounter set to be played in Ouagadougou next month.

Coach Maxwell Konadu’s side are expected to win the tie and advance to the tournament after missing out of the last two editions of the competition.

Ahead of the crucial encounter, Asiamah has released a statement encouraging fans to troop to the Stadium on Sunday to support the team to victory.

“Once again, I am appealing and calling on the good people of our beloved country to be at the Baba Yara stadium on Sunday 22nd September, 2019 to support our home based Black Stars as they play their Burkinabe counterparts in the first leg qualifier of African Nations Championships (CHAN).

I am encouraging you our ambassadors to go all out and ‘ demolish ‘ your opponents and and make the 2nd leg a mere formality.
I wish you well and assure you of the nation’s support
God be with you.

Black Stars, we shall win for you.
God bless our homeland, Ghana”
