The event is expected to be the biggest sporting event in Ghana in 2013, similar to the charity match which Essien hosted in 2011.

Essien is a Peace Ambassador appointed by the African Union in 2010 to use his status as an African and international footballer to promote peace in Africa.

The latest Essien initiative is expected to create huge awareness of the need for Africans themselves to make an effort to inspire the youth towards peace, hope and inspiration.

Essien, the Ghana superstar who plays for Real Madrid, has invited some of the world’s best players to play in Accra between World IX and Africa IX in June to raise fund to promote peace in Africa.

Some of the world’s best players from Spain, England, Italy, France and Germany have been invited to play in the friendly game dubbed ‘A Game Of Hope And Inspiration’.

A three-day mammoth event has been planned with a music concert with some of the world’s and Africa’s best musicians in attendance.

Players like Frank Lampard, Ashley Cole, John Terry, Didier Drogba, Emmanuel Adebayor, Emmanuel Eboue, Asamoah Gyan, Stephen Appiah, Sulley Muntari, Adam Kwarasey, Kwadwo Asamoah have been invited for the match.

Top Spain-based players like Casillas, Ricardo Carvalho, Sergio Ramos, Luca Modric, Xabi Alonso, Kaka and Xabi Alonso have all been invited for the game.
