Black Stars will observe a minute of silence in the 2026 World Cup qualifier against Madagascar on Friday for late Ghanaian striker Raphael Dwamena.
The former Ghanaian striker passed away on November 11 after he collapsed during a league match in Albania after years of having heart problems.
As a way of paying tribute to the late Ghana striker, the Ghana FA has secured clearance from FIFA for a minute silence to be observed when Ghana takes on Madagascar.
“As regards to program to honour Raphael Dwamena, we officially wrote to FIFA to seek approval and this afternoon, FIFA has positively responded to our request so tomorrow we shall have a one-minute silence in his honour before kickoff,” GFA Communications Director Henry Asante Twum has revealed.
The Black Stars will host Madagascar at the Babe Yara Sports Stadium in the first match of the qualifying campaign on Friday.
The game is scheduled to kick off at 4 pm at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
