Ghana has recalled long-time Black Stars goal keeper Richard Kingson for its upcoming World Cup qualifier against Egypt. This has set off a trend on social media using #olelefacts – Olele being the goalkeeper’s nickname. Football fans argue the goalie is too old having been in the posts through many generations of black stars players.
