The 2015 edition of the All Africa Games kicks off in Brazzaville today, and already Ghana is off to a bad start.

Dispute over payments left our contingent stranded in the Congolese capital, with officials refusing to accommodate them until the bills were settled.

With such an incident likely to affect morale, this gesture by the Ghana captain would certainly be appreciated and perhaps spur the Queens on to excellence.

Gyan visited the team’s camp in Brazzaville, and presented them with an amount of $10,000 to assist in their preparations and to spur morale. The Black Stars are in the country preparing for this weekend’s qualifier, and beat the Congo national side 3-2 on Tuesday.

Gyan also urged the side to endeavour to represent Ghana to the best of their abilities, and to aim for excellence.

The Black Queens commence hostilities on September 10, when they play their first game. The male team, the Black Meteors, commence on Sunday, September 6 against Senegal.
