We remember the days when football used to mean something to Ghanaians. Lately football hast been cast in the same vein as everything unpleasant and for good reasons too.

Ghanaians finally called it quits after several controversial and scandalous incidents marred Ghana's chances of bringing home silverware from any international tournament.

Ghanaians finally called it quits after several controversial and scandalous incidents marred Ghana's chances of bringing home silverware from any international tournament.

Enter Afcon 2017; Ghana's chance to redeem themselves after several attempts at trying to win a major trophy. Sports pundits have referred to the Black Stars as "4 time African Champions" since 1982 when Charles Gyamfi led the stars to glory in Libya.

Egypt equaled Ghana's record back in 1998 and have since gone on to win the continental trophy 3 times more than the West African nation. Oh yes, we almost forgot to include the fact that they have once again made it to the finals of this year's edition of the African Cup of Nations.

"For how long? For how long will we refer to ourselves as 4-time champions?"...that was the question Ghanaians used to ask themselves back in the day when football mattered. Egypt is striving for number 8.

The tactical and psychological reasons attributed to our Afcon debacles may best be left to the technical staff and more importantly the Ghana Football Association.

Now for the lighter side. Ghanaians are trolls not doubt. And before anyone sues me for plagiarism "You miss 100 percent of the shots you never take — Wayne Gretzky". Yes...we're looking at you Dede Ayew.
