The famous 64 Battalion which dominated the local and African terrain in the late ’90s and early 2000s, made a clean sweep of titles in Ghana and Africa, winning the Ghana Premier League, FA Cup and the CAF Champions League in 2000, followed by the CAF Super Cup in 2001. The 64 Battalion made up of players such as Goalkeeper Sammy Adjei, Eben Dida Armah, Jacob Nettey, Amankwah Mireku, Ishmael Addo remain in the hearts of all Phobians……
