U-20 Afcon: Lomotey Brace Gives Ghana Winning Start Against Burkina



Ghana’s Black Satellites opened their Total U-20 Africa Cup of Nations campaign with a resounding 2-0 victory over Burkina Faso at the Stade de Maradi on Monday.

The three time U-20 champions needed a brace on either side of half time from forward Daniel Lomotey to edge West African neighbors in Niger’s third largest city, Maradi.

The Black Satellites who boast of an enviable record of being the only African side to lift the FIFA U-20 World Cup title started the better in the rescheduled fixture with the front three of Enoch Agyei, Ibrahim Sadiq and Daniel Lomotey.

The Burkinabe created the first meaningful chance of the free-flowing encounter when the exciting Salifou Diarrassouba beat his marker for pace and delivers a cross for Djibril Cheick who headed over Nurudeen’s goal.

The young Burkinabe’s continued to press the Ghanaian defense but failed trouble Nurudeen who denied Ellias Dianda and Cheick with routine saves before the half hour mark.

Jimmy Corbblah’s side took the lead five minutes before the break through Daniel Lomotey who latched onto a through ball and dinked the onrushing keeper for his first goal of the championships.

Burkina Faso returned from the break looking like a team that was ready to fight back and level matters. Substitute Hugo Passega couldn’t guide home Diarrassouba’s brilliant delivery two minutes into the second period.

Hugo turned provider for Cheick three minute later when he nutmegs his challenger on the right side of attack and crosses inside but the lanky forward could only head wide.

Captain Tiendrebeogo tried to inspire his troops when he worried the Ghanaians with a long range free kick destined for the top corner was just about tipped over by the calm Nurudeen.

Ghana settled by their one goal cruising started to build from the back to attack with slick moves in the middle of the park with Mohamed Kudus and Sabit Abdulai combined well to pin the Burkinabe in their own half.

Sadiq headed Kumah’s corner just wide off the goal before seeing his fierce effort blocked by the defense on the hour mark.

Burkina Faso defender Gilberto Kone forced Nurudeen to a brilliant diving save heading in from a corner with time running out for them.

Lomotey added salt to Burkina’s injury when he turned Gilberto Kone in the box and fired past Mohamed Traore to give Ghana all three point and increases his tally to two.

Burkina continued to attack hoping to reduce the deficit but the brilliant Nurudeen was in hand to deny Cheick Ouattara whose cracking effort was parried away and Ghana join Senegal at the top of Group B before they face each other on Wednesday.

Stephen Appiah Impregnates TV Personality Vanessa Gyan : Insider Alleges



Stephen Appiah

Former Ghanaian footballer-Stephen Appiah’s wife is said to be WILD—and sometimes paranoid. But this does not seem to have stopped Stephen Appiah from allegedly chopping down Vanessa Gyan and even having a child with her.

Who the heck is Vanessa Gyan at all?

Vanessa is a Ghanaian-American who made a little name within the Ghanaian media landscape as the daughter of the keyboardist of Osibisa-Kiki Gyan, and then had a low paid TV gig at eTV and briefly at GHONE.

With her being on TV, she started eating from the side table of some popular industry persons—and we guess that’s when Stephen Appiah met her or let’s say when her “trap caught a bayla”.

More than three different sources have told us this week that, Vanessa Gyan has told friends, with one saying she told her directly, in New York, that Stephen Appiah is the father of her child.

Interestingly, while some of her former work colleagues have told us that it’s known by all her friends that Stephen Appiah is the father of her child—at least so she claims, another person close to the footballer stated that, Appiah has not really accepted any responsibility for that child as he allegedly says the sex was just once.

When our source reached out to Vanessa Gyan to confirm or deny the hovering allegation that Stephen Appiah is the father of her child, she vanished into thin air, on Whatsapp, as if she is our contemporary Wukong from the Journey to the West.

Immediately our source’s Founding Editor-Chris-Vincent Agyapong messaged Vanessa about the above, she quickly changed her DP which featured her child.

Of course, the child resembles Appiah—dark and lovely, but that’s not the sort of final confirmation required on such matters.

Whatever it is, we hope the child knows the father. Girls do not joke these days with dishing out the pregnancy sauce…

Asamoah Gyan

Former captain of the Ghana Black Stars, Asamoah Gyan, has recently ventured into the acting business. This comes as no surprise as he recently revealed that he would no longer play with the Blacks Stars in any tournament.

It would be recalled that a few years back, Asamoah Gyan ventured into the music business but that proved unsuccessful after his musician friend Castro underfaya went missing.

Via his Instagram handle he announced that he is starting a new TV Program titled, “The Adventures of Asamoah Gyan Baby Jet”.

He wrote; “Something new cooking oooo Just subscribe on new YouTube channel on my Bio. Subscribe ooooo, yoooo”.

We are anticipating the project of the footballer-musician and now actor. We just hope the movie would’nt be riddled with substandard acting that would make viewers cringe. Fingers crossed.
