    I want to assure our black stars that Ghanaians are fully behind you guys. But anyway those bad and useless comments are coming from Naija ppl who pretend by using gh names so just ignore them and show them wherever we meet them. Thank you.

    Massa, make you forget about Arsene Wenger and Arsenal,when you opted to play for Ghana,he dropped and never given you playing time,the world cup is a good opportunity to showcase your talent,so just have to work hard and qualify and whilst you are at it,try to get the fack out of England,their football is shite anyway...
