    • Shut the fuck up Mansoor! I think you are a Man United Fan.How many africans are playing for Man U?Those Essien invited are good and okay…..They love africans too.Rooney is not invited.

  3. If truly Essien wants to show peace he would have invited other star players irrespective of d clubs they play for. I think Messy and Rooney are also world class
