    Ghanasoccernet always screw up. Why can't you learn. The picture on the page is not Robert Hammond. Please find the correct picture. Robert Hammond wasn't playing during the time Pele and Santos played Hearts of Oak.

    The picture is that of Pele Amusa Gbadamoshie and Pele Erantes Nascimento. One a Ghana domiciled Nigerian and the other, a Native Brazilian. Robert Hammond also called Expensive, Superstar amongst other accolades, played for Hearts long after Santos had played at the Accra Sports Stadium. My plea is that our Managers and Editors should do more digging as to give those who do not know, the truth about Afghanistan! Bob, RIP.
