Abassador Quarcoo, a former Black Stars management member, who chaired the 6th FA Cup Awards Gala on Friday, said that “In my opinion, the deep-rooted tension between the two bodies is infantile and therefore must be resolved as a matter of urgency. “We need to go back and pick lessons from how Ohene Djan, Ghana’s fir

Promoted maidens skipper Sandra Owusu Ansah also came close to scoring for ghana but saw her shot go past the poles by inches. Christianson grabbed the m

EMBITTERED fans of Accra Hearts of Oak yesterday demanded a ‘pound of flesh’ from the club’s Chief Executive, Vincent Sowah-Odotei, after the Phobians slumped 0-1 to visiting Medeama SC in their penultimate Premier League clash at the Accra Sports Stadium. The distressed supporters dreadfully hunted for Odotei like a game in the Dodowa forest, raging to ‘tear him apart’ and the fluky man had to be whisked away in Hollywood style to safety.
