The Black Stars were elated when Otumfuo Osei Tutu II paid an unannounced visit to them while training at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, Kumasi.

The Black Stars have made it a ritual to seek Otumfuo’s blessing before any difficult tie in Kumasi and it happened again on Friday at the Mahyia Palace ahead their opening 2019 AFCON qualifying game against Ethiopia.

The King of the Asante kingdom encouraged the team and urged them to win massively against their Ethiopian counterparts and also told the general public to troop to the stadium on Sunday.
