  • Age grade fraud. Cheating. Age kwanu kwezye nuhhhhh.

  • pompei 2 weeks ago

    These lads are U17.
    If you don’t get it, forget about it.

  • Thief man knows thief man…lol

  • In 2016, 26 players from your u17 team were caught age cheating in the Africa u17 tournament. You cheats! Luckily NMR is available to expose any such age cheating so stop talking rubbish and pray your team qualifies from the group

  • On a slightly different topic Yaw, why did Ghana decline to participate in the CAF qualifiers for the 2024 Under-17 women’s world cup? That for me is very disappointing.

    Number one, Ghana were the first African country to win bronze at the U-17 Women’s World Cup. Number Two Ghana currently has some truly promising Under-20 Women’s footballers as they are currently WAFU and Africa Games champions. So it will seem to me that Ghana would want to replenish that stock by exposing the U-17 girls.

    Anyways, perhaps there is an unavailable reason why Ghana chose not to participate in this World Cup qualifiers…
