    Oh Ivory Coast yet another disappointment again. In the past we have always said they have not been lucky of their groups so we all were confidence that they will qualify this time around because their group looked manageable. However another AYEWIC has caused them another failure when at the latter part of the match what Kalou needed to do was a simple square pass when the score line stood at 1-1 but did what is onvious with most of Africans players UNNECESSARILY SELFISH or AYEWIC

  2. Tor says:

    They shd come home we are fed-up with these players . Cameroon did the samething and disgraced themselves. I think the Africa FAs shd come out with policies to stop this nonsense. With all the exposure we offer the players from u17 to this level what does the country benefit. These coconut players shd do the cost benefit analysis and see who gains more, country or player.

    Oh…so when will African players start putting the nations pride ahead of their personal benefits….u will never see this happen in Europe….

  4. Kofi Badu says:

    The players are right.The political leaders have lied for far too long and this time trust is lost on the side of the FA.

  5. Emmanuel Anim Amartey says:

    I learnt the government have to pay before receiving from figs after the tournament. If that is so, then our prayer should have consider the present economic situation in the country now and for that matter, should have excise some patience. But I think the issue of the technical team receiving same amount with the prayers, is also factor for the prayer rivort and that must critically be look at for the next time.
