Akonnor applauded the bravery of the Dawu-based club and called for Ghanaians to give them the support needed to bring glory to the country.

“Dreams FC are succeeding and have brought pride to Ghana. How fearlessly and confidently they play is something to behold,” Akonnor told Akoma FM, as quoted by Pulse.
“I think they will win the competition the way they are going. We must all lend them our support. We should all be proud of the players for demonstrating soundness and unity, and we should support them to reach the finals and possibly win the championship.”

Dreams FC will engage the North Africans on the weekend of April 18 to 20 in the first leg of their semi-final clash, as reported by CAF Online.

They became the first Ghanaian team to reach the semi-final of the CAF club competition since Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko in 2004, per Asaase Radio.
