    I predict 4-0 for Colombia with juju dauda in the post. No joke Falcao will score like there’s mo keeper in the post. Better drop dauda or the whole team will be cursed. Baws!!

  2. JAY TEE says:

    This Dauda must vanish from the goal post. Kwarasey will do the job.

    This is sad news. GFA should deny this friendly coz whenever I hear any1 saying “Colambia”, memories of 2001 confederations cup semi finals against Cameroun arises as 1 life was lost on the pitch (Marck Vivien Foe). Keep your Kwado Asamoah out of these Columbians as he may be the next west african victim from these Marijuana smokers island.
