    I am very disappointed,If my 98 pounds extra goods in front of me were not there I would have played and run better than this guy called opare. What a waste of porto's resources; start counting how many times and mins porto will play him. The reason why this guy was lossing all the 50 50 balls with USA was his new contract witih porto. He was trying not to hurt himself before porto's pre season, he is injury prone and he is also older than its on paper. The only coach who will trust such a player is Akwesi Appiah because of his tactical illitracy.

    Who cares,if Opare likes he play can play hide and seek with the coach,that is his cup of tea.All we want is for Appiah and Nyantakyie to resign.
