Another, Conzy GH also indicated that the post might be a silent caution to the footballers who are currently in Cameroon. He wrote: "This one Ghana police is posting them nyi, it’s a warning to them anaa."

A third, Nana Poke also charged the boys to give their best as the Inspector General of Police, Dr George Akuffo Dampare has his eyes on them.

He wrote: "IGP is watching if you lose don't come back here."

The official post from the Ghana Police Service to the Black Stars read: "We wish the Ghana Black Stars well in their encounter this evening with the Les Panthères of Gabon. #GoforVictory! #AMustWin! #BlackStarsToAfrica! #The2022AfricaCupofNations."
