    Warris is the real deal. He made a mistake by moving to russia. But since no one is perfect we all hope in the near future he dont repeat such kind of mistakes. France realy suits his style of play. He will surprise many at the mundial in Brasil. He will be the golden boy of ghana soccer. Mark it on the wall.this is just the beginning
