    Black star players shouldn't boast in their own strength. And also they shouldn't be satisfied with one(1) goal. They should go in the of the Lord

    So why on earth will two players decide they wont be part of this exercise.The reasons they gave are not good enough especially essien.He should know that he needs this world cup more than anyother.If KPB feels he is not fit enough then so be it- drop him now.Lets take only fit players.Coach AA, we all love you and wish you well but you need to stamp your feet down and let them know you either play by the rules or 'gerrout'.
