Ghana President H. E. Nana Akufo-Addo has promised to gift an amount of $5,000 to Black Satellites goalkeeper Ibrahim Danlad for his impressive display at the just ended CAF U-20 African Cup of Nations.
The Asante Kotoko gloves man played a key role in the Black Satellites conquest as they beat Uganda 2-0 on Saturday, 6 March 2021 to win the competition which for the first time had 12 instead of eight teams.
His saves, agility and between-the-sticks confidence caught the eyes of the tournament’s Technical Study Group (TSG).
The president’s promise comes after the gallant Ghana U-20 side visited him at the Flagstaff House to present to him the trophy won at the showpiece in Mauritania.
Among the players who excelled for Ghana is Danlad Ibrahim who was eventually named goalkeeper of the tournament.
As a congratulatory gesture, the President, Nana Akuffo Addo has pledged to gift him an amount of $5000.
