It's Up For Grabs Now
Sunday, April 30, 2006
There's a shock awaiting for Ghana, who are planning a World Cup warm-up in England against Jamaica. They can't get a London ground because none of them are prepared so soon after the end of the domestic season, so they've moved it to Leicester - according to AllAfrica.com, however, they can't get the Walkers Stadium, but "Filbert Street, the old football ground for Leicester Football Club was only secured because the rugby team also uses the ground and the rugby league has just begun." Which is interesting, given Filbert Street is now student flats, there isn't a rugby league club in the city and the nearby Welford Road rugby union ground is in the closing stages of its season.
