    I believe that the president of GFA will give Milo a second chance. I want Milo badly because he is the right man for the black stars job. People who don't like Milo must not buy milo

    GNS must report the facts: Atsu played only the first half of the friendly against Evian and was substituted at half time when the score was goalless. Although he played well, you cannot really say he 'was key' to Porto's victory!
