Chris Bosh Finally In Ghana!!!

Posted on

 

NBA super star Chris Bosh arrived in Ghana on Thursday afternoon ahead of a four-day official visit to the African country, BASKETBALLghana.com can confirm.

The Miami Heat forward was met on arrival at the Kotoko international airport by Senior Director for NBA Africa, John Manyo Plange, officials of Coca-Cola Company Limited, the Ghana Basketball Association and Chief Executive of Rite Multimedia Yaw Sakyi Afari.

He interacted with the media briefly before being whisked to the Movenpick Hotel in Accra where he will stay during his visit.

The 30-year-old is in Ghana on the invitation of Coca-Cola Company Limited and NBA Africa for the second edition of the Sprite Ball Clinic in the West Africa country.

Addressing the media on arrival, the former Toronto Raptors player was hopeful his visit will make an impact on young basketball players in Ghana.

“I always do a lot of travelling. I have friends from Ghana and I heard nothing but good things so it’s nice to be here to see it for myself,” he told reporters

“I don’t have any expectations when it comes to basketball. I just like to see the talents. I always love working with kids.
“I know everyone loves basketball here so I’m sure we’ll have a very good time. Really just teaching the game, playing the game and having a lot of fun.

“I have always worked with the NBA. I have been to South Africa with them and when they told me this was the destination, I jumped at the opportunity.

“I have been to many countries around the world and I always want to go to more.

“My man Pops Mensah Bonsu comes from here and he told me he came here last year and had an incredible time.”

Bosh will interact and train promising basketball talents in the country in a platform which will see one player being picked to represent Ghana at the 2014 Basketball Without Borders programme in South Africa in August.

Bosh is expected to meet with American ambassador to Ghana Gene Cretz on Friday morning before he addresses a scheduled press conference later in the day at the Aviation Social Centre.

He will hold the first session at the same venue on Friday July 11 before he travels to Cape Coast for the second clinic at the Adisadel College on Saturday July 12.

The 2014 Sprite Ball Clinic is being put together by Coca-Cola Company Limited in collaboration with NBA Africa and the Ghana Basketball Association.

It is organized by Rite Multimedia – leaders in basketball development and promotion in Ghana.

PORTUGAL PAYS FINAL HOMAGE TO EUSEBIO

Posted on Updated on

Lisbon (AFP) – Tens of thousands of people turned out in the rain on Monday to say a final farewell to Portuguese football legend Eusebio, who grew up in grinding African poverty to become one of the world’s greatest players.

Mourners lined the streets of Lisbon and applauded as the black hearse carrying Eusebio’s coffin, draped in the red and white colours of his club side Benfica, passed by in a funeral cortege broadcast live on TV.

Earlier, about 10,000 mourners applauded and cheered as six pall-bearers carried the coffin and placed it on a golden plinth in the centre of the pitch at Benfica’s “Stadium of Light”.

The coffin remained on the plinth for only a few minutes before it was carried around the stadium in the hearse as Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli’s “Con te partiro” was played from loudspeakers.

Mourners, many in tears, threw red and white Benfica scarves on the hearse and waved red and green Portuguese flags as it passed by, crying out: “Eusebio, Eusebio”.

“Eusebio was out of this world like (Cristiano) Ronaldo and (Lionel) Messi. He will be Benfica’s eternal myth,” said Benfica coach Jorge Jesus.

Fans left flowers, handmade posters and Benfica scarves at a statue of the player that sits outside the stadium.

Flags flew at half mast across Lisbon, with the Portuguese government decreeing three days of mourning for Eusebio da Silva Ferreira, who died of a heart attack early Sunday aged 71.

“Portugal has today lost one of its most beloved sons, Eusebio da Silva Ferreira. The country mourns his death,” President Anibal Cavaco Silva had said.

Cavaco Silva and Prime Minister Pedro Passos Coelho both attended the funeral mass held in the Seminary Church near the stadium, which was broadcast live on Portuguese television.

Eusebio was buried at the nearby Lumiar cemetery after the mass.

Portugal’s current football star Ronaldo dedicated his two goals in Real Madrid’s 3-0 win over Celta Vigo on Monday to Eusebio.

“I want to thank everyone, especially to all the people in Spain for the homage they have paid to Eusebio. For the Portuguese it is very important to feel the warmth shown by the Spanish people,” said Ronaldo.

“He helped me a lot with the national team and he is an example for us. It is very sad that we have lost one of the greatest players of all time.”

Born into poverty in Africa, Eusebio scored 733 goals in 745 matches and rivalled all-time greats including Pele, Alfredo Di Stefano and Bobby Charlton.

“I was the best player in the world, top scorer in the world and Europe. I did everything, except win a World Cup,” Eusebio said in a interview in 2011, recalling his tears after Portugal’s loss in the 1966 World Cup semi-final to England.

From humble origins in the former Portuguese colony of Mozambique, Eusebio was to emerge as one of the world’s most feared strikers, combining panther-like pace with a ferocious shooting ability.

Born in 1942, the poor boy from Maputo rose to prominence in Mozambique football circles as a teenager through his performances for Sporting Lourenco Marques.

With his exceptional technique, strength and goal-scoring record, it was not long before word of Eusebio’s prowess soon filtered back to Portugal and he joined Benfica.

In an early game for Benfica he outshone Pele in a friendly against Santos and in 1962 he scored the crucial goals in a 5-3 victory over Real Madrid in the European Cup final.

When Madrid’s legendary Hungarian Ferenc Puskas symbolically handed his jersey to Eusebio after the match, the message was clear — the torch had passed, and in 1965 Eusebio was awarded the Ballon d’Or.

Pele, the Brazilian widely regarded as the greatest footballer of all time, took to his Twitter account to tell the world: “I cry for the death of my brother Eusebio. We became friends during the 1966 World Cup in England.”

While Eusebio excelled with Benfica in Europe, it was his exploits at the 1966 World Cup for which he will be best remembered.

Eusebio’s nine goals in England propelled Portugal to a third-place finish, and a succession of opposing teams simply had no answer to the power and pace of his play.

He finished his 64-cap career having accumulated 41 goals for Portugal.

He also earned European football’s Golden Boot award twice and was Portugal’s top scorer every season between 1964 and 1973. He helped Benfica to 11 league championships and five domestic cups.

Married with two daughters, in retirement he became an ambassador for Benfica and the Portuguese football federation.
