‘It was our biggest wish to give Ghanaians something to cheer about’ – Thomas Partey


Ghana midfielder Thomas Partey it was the biggest wish of the Black Stars team to give Ghanaians something to cheer about at the 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament in Qatar.

According to him, it was unfortunate for the team as the tournament didn’t go the way they expected it to be after the group stages elimination.

“It was our biggest wish to give Ghanaians something to cheer about but unfortunately it didn’t go as we wanted.”

“I want to say a huge thank you for the unconditional support from home and across the world.”

“With the support of God we will come back stronger.” He wrote on Twitter.

A 2-0 win for Uruguay in their Group H decider with Ghana prevented the Black Stars from enacting any sort of revenge for their quarter-final loss at the 2010 World Cup, but this pulsating victory for La Celeste at the 2022 edition came with a heavy price.

South Korea’s 2-1 win over Portugal in the corresponding group stage decider saw them leapfrog both Uruguay and Ghana late on, meaning they’ll progress to the last 16, and send both of these sides home despite Uruguay’s victory.

The build-up to the match had been dominated by Luis Suarez’s handball right at the end of extra-time in their 2010 knockout match. Asamoah Gyan’s miss proved fatal for Ghana 12 years ago, but captain Andre Ayew, the only remaining player from the 2010 squad, couldn’t avenge.
