    Where is self made king and his black shirt stars brothers? They are hiding. I told them. Right in your backyard. Yet you baby black shirt stars failed your nation. Tears all over in Accra

    • Selfmade KING 2 years ago

      We aren’t hiding anywhere!! We are here!!

      Besides Ghana has already won the fifa under 17 twice 

      Ghana is the only AFRICA nation to have won the fifa under 20 

      We don’t want these cups again lol 

      We are going for the the real one which is the fifa senior worlcup!!

      • We will support you, black stars, our African brothers all the way but please stop this your hatred for your senior brother, the super eagles of Nigeria. The only African team to be ranked no5 in the world by FIFA. Ghana is still way behind Nigeria in football…remember Ghana never defeated Nigeria in Abuja, you only won on away goals rules no thanks to our ineffective Eguavoen, who despite no coaching certificate, was saddled with the responsibility of coaching our flagship team, the Super Eagles.
        Hope NFF and the incoming administrator would have learnt their lessons so you don’t give people like Self-Made King who have no respect for their senior brother, the Super Eagles of Nigeria the mouth to insult us.

        • Big brother my a**. Why is Ghana behind Nigeria? How many afcon titles do you have? What’s your best performance at the World Cup? What is the head-to-head between the two countries? You only pride yourselves with winning under aged tournaments with over aged players. Abeg make I pass

    Peseiro looking at a bunch of players. Nice one. He should also look at that boy Ishaq Abdulrazak.
    Perhaps also tap up Michael Olise, who has reportedly ruled out Algeria, and is looking to decide between France and Nigeria. Akpoguma has also expressed his willingness to continue his international adventure with Nigeria, but is asking Peseiro for guaranteed playing time. That might be a problem, as I don’t see Peseiro giving him or anyone else any such guarantees.

    Somebody keep tabs on this lad as well.

    Players on Peseiro”s radar:

    Malcolm Ebiowei (Nephew to Finidi)

    Alhasan Yusuf
    Osayi Samuel 

    Great times ahead starting from our youth teams.
