Elvis Afriyie-Ankrah backs Ghana to beat 'confused' Libya to lift CHAN title

Ghana and Libya will clash again at CHAN

By Patrick Akoto

Ghana Sports minister Elvis Afriyie Ankrah has tipped the home-based Stars to beat  ‘confused’ Libya to lift the CHAN title on Saturday.

The two sides will go at each other in Saturday’s final at Cape Town after they both negotiated their semi-final games.

Ghana and Libya needed penalty shootout to advance to the finals at the expense of Nigeria and Zimbabwe respectively.

Libyan football was brought to a halt for two years due to political tension that engulfed the North African country.

But they are just a game away from lifting the trophy which could help to heal wounds in the post Gadhafi era.

However Ghana’s sports minister Elvis Afriyie Ankrah says their opponent are too ‘confused’ to stand mighty Ghana.

“Libya? That’s Gadhafi’s children. He is dead and so they are confused. They should just give the cup to us,”  he joked after Ghana’s semi-final win over Nigeria.

“They cannot stand in our way for the title. We are taken the cup home to our people.”

Football in Libya only started in September last year after being brought to a halt in February 2011 by the civil conflict which ousted the dictator Moammar Gadhafi.

    That’s a very disgusting thing to say about an opposing team; what makes them Gaddafi’s children and not the nation of Libya? And he is a minister? speaking like he eats garbage? I hope he didn’t say these things because it is very embarrassing. and I hope he wasn’t trying to be funny because it is not funny!

  2. Lord Dennings says:

    Mr. Afriyie, Please be careful in public speaking. You always have to be strategic in picking your words. Football and politics are intrinsically intertwined and should therefore be used as a means of promoting unity and cooperation. As competitive as football may be, we have to control our emotions. We understand that we need to pep our boys, we need to do it in a way that will not infringe our opponents politically, socially or any other form. We must conform with football etiquette
