    GHANA fans were left with a feeling of deja vu after Andre Ayew missed a first half penalty in their crucial World Cup clash with Uruguay.

    Cristiano Ronaldo starts for Portugal in their opening World Cup match - two days after his Manchester United contract was terminated.  Ronaldo has yet to speak publicly since becoming a free agent for the first time in his career, having chosen to skip captain media duties on Wednesday. But head coach Fernando Santos has not been deterred by the off-field drama surrounding the 37-year-old and has picked him from the start against Ghana this afternoon. 'This is something that has not even been discussed,' boss Santos said of Ronaldo on Wednesday, as he became increasingly frustrated by questions focused on his captain. 'This conversation [about his exit] has not come up at any moment, not even from him.'  On Tuesday, as revealed by Sportsmail, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner kissed goodbye to £16million after he left United with immediate effect. Ronaldo's exit has been agreed by mutual consent but Sportsmail can reveal that United have not paid any compensation for the remaining seven months of his £500,000-a-week contract at Old Trafford. Ronaldo's exit was announced on Tuesday afternoon after United confirmed...

Sky-high inflation continues to affect the Zimbabwean economy.John Moore | Getty Images News | Getty Images Foreign exchange markets have endured a rocky ride in 2022, but in some countries, a combination of geopolitical pressures and central bank missteps has pushed currencies into a "death spiral." A stronger dollar over the course of the year, as investors flocked toward the traditional "safe haven" amid the deluge of geopolitical and macroeconomic shocks, has weighed heavily on many emerging market currencies. Major oil producers and countries with central banks that have hiked interest rates decisively are generally faring better.GhanaSteve Hanke, professor of applied economics at Johns Hopkins University, publishes a regular list of the year's worst-perfoming currencies -- and Ghana's cedi is near the top. The cedi hit a fresh record low against the dollar on Wednesday last week, at one stage hitting the 14.24 mark before recovering slightly.

    MIKEL ARTETA remained coy on his team selection ahead of the match against Liverpool as he aims to reach his second cup final as Arsenal boss. The Gunners requested their match against Tottenham on Sunday was postponed due to Covid and injuries ravaging their squad. 2Martin Odegaard and Emile Smith Rowe could both return to the starting line-up And though some issues remain Arteta can welcome back some important players to his squad for Thursday's Carabao Cup clash. Martin Odegaard returns as the only Covid absentee from the weekend, while Thomas Partey could also be back in the UK after being knocked out of AFCON with Ghana. The Emirates match against Liverpool could come too soon for the midfielder but Emile Smith Rowe could operate in a deeper role after missing out in the first leg of the semi-final. Bukayo Saka is also expected to be back along with Calum Chambers, Takehiro Tomiyasu and Cedric Soares - all four have overcome knocks. But Granit Xhaka is still suspended after his red card at Anfield - finding a partner for Sambi...
    ARSENAL have been dealt a big injury blow ahead of their crucial Premier League clash against Liverpool. Midfield regular Thomas Partey will not be involved for Ghana against South Africa on Sunday as he's still receiving some treatment at his club. 1Partey has played a key role in Arsenal's surge up the Prem tableCredit: GETTY IMAGES Partey missed the Gunners' 1-0 win over newly promoted Watford last weekend with a thigh strain, and it has potentially thrown an appearance against title hopefuls Liverpool next weekend into doubt. But according to Goal reporter Charles Watts, Arsenal do have some hope he could make the trip to Anfield with their impressive ten-game unbeaten run on the line. Should he miss the game, Ainsley Maitland-Niles could be handed another start in the middle of the park. Mikel Arteta's men will have some hope of getting one over on the Reds though. Liverpool's 25-game unbeaten streak came to an end at the hands of West Ham last time out. David Moyes' high-flying Hammers beat the former Prem and European champions 3-2 at...
    Live updates: Controversial White House coronavirus adviser Scott Atlas resigns Rights group asks Sri Lanka to probe deadly prison unrest In a Global War Over Chocolate, It’s Hershey Against West Africa (Bloomberg) -- In the sweet world of chocolate, it’s seen as a club wielded by the OPEC of confections -- a tool of a faraway cartel that artificially inflates the price of precious cocoa. Load Error In Ivory Coast and Ghana, where most of the world’s cocoa is actually grown, it is viewed as something else entirely: a lifeline for farmers and entire economies held hostage to the vagaries of world commodities markets. Now those competing viewpoints -- globalization reduced to a chocolate bar -- have collided in spectacular fashion and thrust the normally secretive machinations of some of the world’s biggest chocolate companies, cocoa traders and processors into rare public view. The governments of Ivory Coast and Ghana have accused Hershey Co., maker of Kisses, Reese’s Pieces and other chocolate treats, of maneuvering to circumvent premiums tacked on to the price of cocoa futures in order...

    ACCRA (Reuters) - Ghana's ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has picked incumbent Nana Akufo-Addo as its presidential candidate in this year's election, setting up a third consecutive head-to-head battle against former president John Dramani Mahama. Akufo-Addo, 76, unseated Mahama in 2016 with 53.8% of the vote, cementing the gold, and cocoa producing West African nation's reputation as a leading democracy in a region that has earned notoriety for political instability. Akufo-Addo will contest the Dec. 7 poll with Vice-President Mahamudu Bawumia as his running mate, the NPP said in a statement on Saturday. Mahama, 61, who has been chosen by the National Democratic Congress as its candidate, defeated Akufo-Addo in the 2012 presidential race.
