Ghana for the African Nations'

I want Ghana to win the African Nation's Cup.

There's a young man I email in Ghana. He lives in a town called Tamale in the Northern Region.

I got to know him around the time I went to research my book, Off Side, which is about fair trade and young footballers being exploited.

I asked him if he was enjoying the African Nations' Cup.

He said that he and his family could neither watch it nor listen to it, because they don't have a TV, radio or electricity.

So my family sent his family this wind-up radio. I posted it today.

It should arrive in five to seven days, meaning he will have it in time for the semi-finals.

That's why I want Ghana to win.

Come on Ghana!
