Ghana’s Ministry of Youth and Sports , have rewarded Dr Kwamena Oboe Quansah, team Doctor of the Black Stars Squad that won the AFCON trophy in 1965 with a cheque for GHC30, 000.00.

Mr Quansah was believed to have been left out when the State rewarded the team for that AFCON triumph during former President John Mahama reign.

President John Mahama redeemed a pledge of GH¢1,700,000 to be shared among 95 former Black Stars players who won laurels for the nation at the 1963, 1965, 1978 and 1982 AFCON tournaments.

According to some team members, the retired doctor played an influential role in helping the country win its first Cup of Nations title where he ensured players of the team were always fit for games.

The kind gesture is also a form to show appreciation for his work.
