The leader of Ghana's delegation to the First Africa Youth Olympic qualifiers in East London, South Africa, Madam Elizabeth King, announced the package yesterday, a day after Ghana's male team had defeated South Africa 3-1 on penalty strokes after drawing 2-2 during regulation time.
However, the ladies who failed to qualify but managed a face-saving third place were left out.
In a related development, some officials of the team were at the Victory Life Evangelical Temple in King Williams Town, East London, yesterday at the invitation of a Ghanaian preacher, Rev Michael Nii-Amartey Mensah, to give thanks to God for the victory.
Rev. Mensah, who was a chief supporter of the teams and mobilised fans to cheer the Ghanaians during the tournament said, "it was important to appreciate the role played by God and to honour him".
Meanwhile, the continental champions’ are expected home tomorrow morning at 5:30 a.m., but that will be preceded by the ladies' arrival today at 9:30 p.m.
