    majority of Ghanaian football player from the 60s are missing.this was ghana golden age.they won back to back africa cup of nations title,were runner up twice, making it to four consecutive finals,and got to the Olympics quarter finals of 64 yet non seem good to be in the list. player like osei kofi,Ibrahim sunday etc should be among. I ve also noticed you have a bias towards north african players.
