I remember landing in Addis Ababa in early 2008.
Any time I told anyone I was from Gnana, the first thing they would say was "Agogo!"
Junior Agogo was a great ambassador for the Black Stars and by extension Ghana.
May his soul rest in peace.https://t.co/RmddC2smLh

Junior Agogo from the heartbreak💔of watching him on BBC's Speechless to today's sad news at 40.
What a journey! full of unforgettable memories in the colours of Barnet, Bristol Rovers and Nottingham Forest.
The brightest Black Star at AFCON 2008 on home soil.
