Meanwhile, Morgan was said to have announced she was not hanging her boots just yet after winning her second FIFA World Cup in France last year.

She vowed to show up at the next edition of the international competition in 2023, although, she would probably have missed out of the Olympic Games this year if it was not disrupted by COVID-19.

Meanwhile, Ibrahim Oppong Kwarteng, the founder and leader of Crime Check Foundation has donated 100 mattresses to prisoners in Ghana who unfortunately have no beds.

In a post sighted by on the official Facebook handle of the Crime Check TV GH, it is indicated that the Prisons Service made the request on the foundation.

According to the report, the Director-General of the Prisons Service met with the Crime Check Foundation just three days earlier, appealing for help as many prisoners had no beds to lay their heads on.
