    Ah Soccernet. What has Boakye' done now. You don't even want to publish it when he scores a goal. Hope this is not to cover AA's deeds. A player playing in the Spanish league with 7 goals and not even on Ghana standby list. Wonders would never end.

    So you didn't even now that Boakye yiadom scored, U waited for Mikel and simple to comment about it before adding him. Just because you have collected money other players to campaign for them, you have no attention for the good players mpo. Hmmmmm Ghana for you
