Former Ghana International Ahmed Barusso together with some former footballers organised a football match to help illegal Ghanaian migrants in Italy.
The football match is held annually to unearth talents and also raise awareness among the Ghanaian community especially those to have arrived in the country illegally.
The football game which is championed by former AS Roma star Ahmed Barusso, is also supported by the Ghanaian community in Italy.
“Every year we play a game to raise support from some of countrymen and also advise the young ones”, he told Mac Paradise Okocha in an interview on Happy FM.
“The game is between some of us who were able to come to Italy legally and the illegal Ghanaian migrants in Italy”.
“The game is played to honour these illegal migrants who also made it to Italy and also encourage them that we are all one people”, he added.
