Whilst many watched Emeli Sande & Ben Howard clean up at the Brit Awards 2013 last night, football fans enjoyed some UEFA Champions League action! AC Milan vs Barcelona! (1st leg).

Against all odds, AC Milan comfortably defeated Barcelona at the San Siro with a 2-0 victory, putting them in a strong position for the second leg.

Two strong forces behind this surprise Barcelona defeat just so happen to be Ghanaian and Black Star teammates: Kevin Prince Boateng & Sulley Munatari. Both players hit the back of the net last night. Boateng scored first, just before the hour followed by a beautiful volley from Muntari with nine minutes left.

To think just a few years ago both players were at Portsmouth FC, now they are playing a huge part in bringing down Spanish giants Barcelona! Keep it up boys!

African Cup of Nations could have been very different if both Boateng & Muntari featured…Just saying!

“What about Messi?” many will ask. The superhuman, 2012 FIFA Player of the Year Lionel Messi did show moments of magic, but as Milan got numbers behind the ball he struggled to find space for execution.

A third Ghanaian (even though he feels 100% Italian) also made the headlines for his celebration with Robinho & friends! Yep you guessed correct, it was the Italian raised, “Why always me” ex Manchester City star Mario Balotelli.
