The president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Kurt Okukra says that the biggest achievement of the Football Association (FA) is qualifying for the world cup
According to the association’s president, although the FA has other few achievements, he believes qualifying for the FIFA World cup is the biggest achievement of the association.
Ghana has qualified to represent the country at this year’s FIFA World Cup in Qatar in November 2022. Ghana has qualified to other three straight world cup tournaments in 2006, 2010, and 2014.
Speaking at the Ghana Football Association Congress on Tuesday, Okraku said the biggest achievement of any FA is ensuring its national team qualifies for the World Cup.
“This is the biggest achievement any member association can talk about. You can qualify for the u15, u17, u23, and the women but if you are absent at the Mundial believe me, you are nothing,” he stated.
“We shouldn’t take it for granted that we’ve qualified because this marks the beginning of a new era for Ghanaian football.
“When you qualify for the world cup, you are treated differently, for my colleagues who have been to Qatar, you’ve had a feel of it and you belong to the big boys.”
