Amputee World Cup: Ghana receives equipment from Poland

Ghana’s Amputee Football Association have received football boots, shin guards, goalkeepers’ gloves from Poland’s Amputee Football coach Marek Dragosz.

According to Dragosz, the philanthropic gesture is in preparation ahead of Ghana’s world cup participation in Mexico later this year.

The renowned, well-travelled coach is known for his support to goalkeepers in less-developed countries, training them to become world class goalies as well as donating kits to needy federations.

Receiving the items, which came by courier, the Chairman of the Ghana Amputee Football Association, Rev Richard Nii Amartey Adesah, expressed his appreciation to the Coach, stating that the items would boost the confidence of the players to train harder for the Mundial.

“This would, in no small way, boost the players’ morale to train harder for the World Cup, which Ghana is poised to bring home.”

He used the opportunity to appeal for more support from individuals and the corporate world to make the dream of a first African Amputee Football World Champions a reality.

“The dream is alive and we are doing our best to ensure that the team is not only in Mexico to participate but to bring the cup home for all Ghanaians to see. He hinted that a platform to enable Ghanaians contribute to the world cup fund would be announced soon, encouraging Ghanaians to donate their widow’s mite to it”. He added.
