Insist on Your Right to Education

Uneducated citizenry is like a pitch any game can be played on it. Illiteracy is what has given the politicians in Ghana the chance to fool so many people for so a long a time.

Update: Ghana 3 - 4 Japan

The Blue Samurai of Japan have fought back from a two goal deficit to lead the Black Stars of Ghana, by four goals to three,in a friendly encounter in Utrecht, Holland.

With barely 10 minutes to go for the end of proceedings, the Blue Samurai dramatically scored three quick goals to lead the Black Stars.

"Baby Jet" Asamoah Gyan scored two goals for the Stars whiles Matthew Amoah added the third. But the Japanese took control of the game thereafter to punish the defensive lapses in the Black Stars set-up.

The first goal was scored in the first half through a penalty kick expertly taken by Asamoah Gyan. This was after one of the Japanese defenders handled the ball in the 18 yard box.

Two quick goals were scored in the space of five minutes in the second half, one going the way of the Blue Samurai of Japan, and the other by France-based Gyan.

With some 20minutes of play time left, Matthew Amoah consolidated the Black Stars lead with a superb kick from inside the penalty box. But the Japanese prevailed by striking back at their Ghanaian counterparts three times.

This match with the Blue Samurai of Japan in Utrecht, Holland, forms part of the Black Stars preparations towards the next world cup qualifier in October.
