Destiny install for blackstars to win

Sat, 1 Feb 2014 Source: nana kyereme {freelance journalist}

*....it first major nations trophy after 32 yrs.*

Since 1982 when Ghana won their last African nations championship .It's now

a voodoo to lift another triumph .But destiny is calling and lottery

stakers will say "chart na tooooooo".

*The last time Ghana won the trophy they were in the same group with Libya

and the two ended up in the tournament final. The group stage match

resulted in a 2-2 draw, jarawah and al -lssari scored for Libya while

George Alhassan and Samuel opoku nti got the equalizes for Ghana .

Surprisingly, Ghana and Libya played a 1-1 draw game in the on-going 2014

African nation's championship and will play in the final on Saturday

*Recounting back in 1982 squad asante kotoko had eight players in that team

and coincidentally in this year, asante kotoko have eight players .

*Furthermore ,Libya team in 1982 was coached by a foreign European lad from

Hungary Bela Goti and In this tournament Javier Clemente from spain is

their trainer .Ghana on the other hand had C.K Gyamfi a local coach

and Maxwell konadu currently.

*Moreover ,in Libya 82 Ghana semi final game against Algeria traveled to

extra time before blackstars won 3-2 and in 2014 extra time came to being

though penalties decided the faith of the match.The nations eliminated ended

with"ria" Nigeria ,Algeria ....

*Lastly ,then team had a player named Sampson "Gaddafi" Lamptey who played

for hearts of Oak and Micheal "Gaddafi "Akuffo is now in the modern day

squad .Also we may have a kotoko player scoring two goals in this on-going

tournament in Southafrica as kwabena Adusei who will not play in the

final is on two goals while Yahaya can end the tournament on two if he

scores a goal in the final match just like Samuel Opoku Nti now kotoko CEO

scored two goals in the 82 tournament.

Let hope it come to pass cause sometimes history don't count in football.
