    This 3rd place amounts to nothing. It does not take anybody to the u17 AFCON or the u17 world cup. Up Ghana the great underachievers of Africa !!!

    • Selfmade KING 2 months ago

      How are we great underachievers when we are the only AFRICA nations to have won two fifa tournaments 

      Under 17

      Under 20

      Nigeria only fifa under 17 and nothing else 

      Ivory Coast -0




      Morocco -0


      With the exception of Ghana, no one has won 2 fifa organized tourneys 

      So shut the hell up

    I told you guys of the referee’s tribe. He’s GA-Adangbe man. Historically, they have a lot in common with Yoruba’s. They and Ewes are more accommodating than Akans.
    So far, he’s being very fair to Golden Eaglets, almost every decision has gone Nigeria’s way, even to the fury of Ghanaian fans (who’re obviously supporting Burkina Faso). Lol

    Nigeria 1-1 Burkina Faso

    Is the game not on today> Abi is today not Fri 24th? If so –
    Why all the hush and absolutely zero stories live blogging for the match, or is it not today?
    Secondly I need to know, Please is this a Ghanian or Nigerian website? – I ask for so many reasons but for simplicity, let me keep it to 2 brief reasons-
    1) How come the ghana black shits game is splattered all over the front page and there’s no mention of the Nigerian game at all? (If indeed the game is on today?)
    2) With some of the disgraceful display and abject lack of home training or common human decency shown oh here by some of those jailbirds, paedophiles, beggars and thieves from that shit dead end, last place on earth called ghanland – one cannot help but wonder if there is any etiquette regulation or moderation going on in this here ogba – If there was then many of those bonehead weapons from down under aka shit land aka ghanland would have been well and truly locked up and had the keys thrown away by now.
    Bloody civilians!

    That number is just committing fowls in vital areas. Why did Ugbade drop that number 10 Okeke?? Is he injured?? He was a big foil for Oyebanjo and Ebube Okere in the middle.

    Jokes aside, one Ghanaman that impressed me was that Appiah lad, the number 11.
    He’s actually a Ghanaboy, as he can’t be more than 18. He’s one of my favourite players in the tournament.
    His dribbling skills and football sense was a delight to watch.
    He will soon be invited to the Banku Shysters, me thinks.
    One day soon, he might be leading a Ghanaman assault against Nigeria. He is a talent to watch.
