A historic ceremony to decorate the quarter finalists of the African Cup of Nations, which "have achieved a great performance," according to Andry Rajoelina. "You have revived the national pride and love of the homeland in all Malagasy. You have united the people in joy. And for that, I congratulate you, "said the head of state. Well deserved, this is how we can qualify this distinction, as the Barea have dreamed the Malagasy people for the past three weeks.

For their first participation, they reached the quarter-finals, scoring a total of seven goals in five games. They beat Nigeria, one of the best nations in Africa, in the group stage. What made the Big Island the revelation of the tournament.

And today, I can say that he kept the promises he made to me. Thank you to the Malagasy people, I have tears in my eyes. I do not have the words to describe what we feel. This ceremony concludes the stay of the Barea in Madagascar. They will now join their respective clubs. Some have already left last night. The others must fly this day.
