    I do agree with you afrikaba. This guy doesn't deserve to even start the game. He was the poorest link in the Ghana play. He couldn't hold on to the ball and even if he did he would pass the ball to an opponent. He wouldn't press the defenders in the 18-yard box when the congolese defenders had the ball and Bansey was the only one chasing the defenders upfront. Am sorry this guy does not deserve the hype that he's getting and i don't know the kind of technical men who charged in giving these man-of-the match awards. They clearly lack the vision and technicalities in the game. Akwasi Appiah should forget about considering this guy for the sundial cos the world cup is not under 17 championship.

    In addition to that I think he took delight in visiting the ground with little challenge. In fact, this guy does not deserve to even warm the BS bench. He also lacks stamina too.
