The talented hard working center back was a key part of the Black Satellites team that won Gold in Mauritania, and also the WAFU Zone B Tournament in Benin last December.
Uzair expressed appreciation to everyone that made the victory possible through prayer and support in an interview with MAVERICK SPORTS CENTER.
“I will like to personally say a very big thank you to His Excellency The President of Ghana Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo, GFA president Kurt Okraku, the coaching body and technical team, my colleague team mates and fellow Ghanaians as well”.
“It was a privilege to be chosen to represent this great country and to bring home a great moment of joy and happiness to the people of Ghana. I will always be willing to die for this country and to raise the flag of Ghana in high esteem. God bless our mother land”. He concluded.
It wasn’t an easy Tournament for Uzair Alhassan as he wasn’t able to make a single appearance at the group stages but later got the nod at the knock-out stages and the Final matches, playing all three games full-time including the 120 minutes against Tournament favorites Cameroon.
The Tamale Utrecht FC Defender was so instrumental at the back for the Satellites to ensure the team conceded just a single goal in 300 minutes of his action time in Mauritania.
The 18-year old was also an integral part of the Black Starlets (U-17) Squad that won silver at the WAFU Zone B in 2018 under Coach Karim Zito.
