  • Yaw, what’s happening here, how come Nigerian players continue to produce performances that risk being overhyped? This Akpom has scored again today while Chukwueze was playing against the mighty Real Madrid earlier on.

    Yaw, how many Ghanaian players have scored in the English FA Cup tournament today? How many Ghana players have scored in top flight European leagues thus far this weekend?

    I guess they are saving their best for the Chan Afcon. Oops! I forgot, Chan is for homebased players so none of the Ghanaian players in Europe is eligible.

    My bad! 🙂
