Michael Essien is going to organize a charity match between the European XI and the African XI in Accra which is the capital city of Ghana. The match will be organized on 8th of June. A number of star players including Joe Cole, Didier Drogba, Kanu, Florent Malouda and Adebayor are expected to take part in the match. The match will be named as “Essien Game of Hope.”

This will be the second charity match organized by the Real Madrid superstar. The first one was organized a couple of years back. The funds from this match will go into the account of Michael Essien Foundation. This Foundation helps the needy people in Ghana.

When asked about this charity game, Essien said, “I am very excited about this match. We are organizing this match for a good cause. Our aim is to collect a huge amount of money from the match and help the needy people with that money.”

“I want the people of Ghana to turn up in huge numbers to watch this match and this will happen only if the star players will come here and participate in the match. So, we are trying to bring some superstars here.”

“Last time when we had organized a charity match in 2011, we had managed to collect reasonable amount of money. That match was a huge success and I want the upcoming match to be the same.”

When asked why the game is named as ‘Game of Hope’, Essien said, “This is because my aim has always been to provide hope to the poor people and sort out their problems.”

Essien is also expected to invite a few players of Real Madrid to participate in the match. One of the members of the organizing committee told the reporters that the players will reach Accra on 7th of June.
