Let's ignite that nostalgic feeling that comes whenever we recount those glorious Black Stars moments of old.

BBC African Footballer of the year - 2006
Michael Essien was very instrumental in Ghana's qualification to her first ever world cup in 2006.
When he was in the midfield, no ball crossed the centre circle into his half of the pitch.
His number "8" was just as glorious as his career.
He always scored the most mysyerious and most "important" goals for his country.
His iconic header against South Africa during the 2006 world cup qualifiers cannot be forgotten.
We have refreshed our memories of what these two illustrious stars have done for us in times past, now i want to ask you this, " if it were possible to re-invite ONE OF THEM to join today's Black Stars team, which of them would be your choice?
