    What’s your issue with this young prospect? He was brought into the team with no prior international experience and performed well above expectation. Maybe if some of the senior players put in half his work rate during the final, the result may have been different. If I was a Ghanaian, I think I would be excited that an enthusiastic footballer was part of your future, irrespective of his ‘Obroni’ background!
