Speaking in a Ghanaian language “Twi” in the video, captain Richard Attah Opainstil said;

My name is Richard Attah Opainstil, team Ghana captain, national amputee team. The CANAF championship hosted in Tanzania has been won by Ghana. When we were leaving, we did not make much noise because of a rift in the team.

However, we put that behind us and a contingent of nine players, most of who play professional in Turkey, came together to compete in the tournament with our own money and no sponsorship.

We’ve won the trophy, it is not ours but for Ghana, so we are pleading for us to be airlifted home because we don’t have money here
