The motive behind the attack remains unknown, but it may be connected to the Black Stars’ loss to Cape Verde.

Ghana are walking a tightrope at the tournament as they face a crucial match against Egypt on Thursday as defeat will end their campaign.

On their part the Egyptians had to rely on a 97th minute penalty from Mohamed Salah to rescue a point against Mozambique.

    But wait ooo are you sure is not @Yaw cos is easy to crossover from Ghana to Ivory coast. That guy is capable of killing because of football besides he is full of hate maybe he has transferred Nigeria hatred to innocent coach. Ghana problem is not coach issue they are undergoing a face and this too will pass. Yaw take it easy ok

        @Monkey brain, shut the fu**k up, who are you to attack Ndubest? Are you Yaw? We know you are a double faced filthy monkey, but be careful, because you are simply empty and fishing in a troubled water

      Of course he is a Ghanaian and Ogun is looking for him.Because Nigeria is too big for his country not to talk of a Rat like him

    When l asked him to confirm his true identity recently and he refused to do so, l then came to the inevitable conclusion that Monkey is a Bonafide Ghanaian. However, by our size and culture, we are capable of admitting him to our fold whenever he posts responsibly.

    • There’s a player called Inaki Williams in Ghana squad….That name thrills me…. Inaki in Yoruba land is Gorilla….I love that guy….he’s good….

      • Browse the club he plays for (giant killers and bet ticket spoilers lol) so that you will understand why he is that passionate.

        Eagles will play in very mid range clubs and even chop bench sef but keep their first 11 spots on the national team.

        Rubbish. Because they don’t have replacements due to weak coach and his scouts.

        Yusuf would have been in Antwerp today.

        Cape Verde has less than 600k population unlike 250m of….

    U guys are really cracking me up honestly…lol..edoman say he asked me to confirm my identity recently n I refused..lie…when.. please dig it up…

    • Edoman 5 months ago

      Okay, may l take this simple opportunity once again to ask you to confirm your real identity if really you are a Ghanaian or you are a Nigerian by birth or by adoption. If you, Monkey post, is a Nigerian, what Logal Government Area were you born.? For me, l am from Oredo L.G.A. Benin City to be sure. Do it Monkey Post. Good or bad say whom you are and let the devil be ashamed.
      Hope monkey sees this post and l hope he react to it and not admit it as he did above.
      Nigeria is big enough by share size and culture to admit you into our Nation without problem so long you stay within the normal constrains that are uniquely acceptable in our Country.
