�Your team played excellent football and could have as well won the trophy�.
�Having arrived to Zurich, I would like on behalf of the international football community to extend our warmest congratulations on your second-place finish, not only to the Black Stars, but also to the coach Avram Grant and the entire technical, administrative and medical team�, the FIFA Boss said in a letter sent to the Ghana Football Association.
