ACCRA - Ghana striker Junior Agogo has received an unusual offer from an 82-year-old fan in appreciation of his exploits at the MTN Africa Cup of Nations semifinal - his granddaughter.

The proposal was made after the Nottingham Forest forward's late winner in the 2-1 success over Nigeria that put the hosts through to today's semifinal with Cameroon. Agogo, who also scored the only goal to beat Namibia in the first round, was approached by the octogenarian fan at the team's hotel 24 hours after Sunday's quarterfinal win.

The man, who gave his name as Nana, told the Ghana star: "I came here last night with my very beautiful granddaughter to introduce her to you. She is not here with me now because she wanted to pick something from town. Son, when she comes, she is all yours."

According to the report on The Daily Graphic's website on Tuesday the 28-year-old forward took the proposition in his stride. - Sapa-AFP
