They say soccer is the most watched sport in the world and has been the most publicized sport since back at the turn of the century in the early 1900’s. Such superstars like Pelè, Maradona, Beckenbauer, Ronaldo, Weah and even Beckham has graced the world with brilliance on and off the field and left a legacy for young bidding stars to emerge all they way at the top to center stage. There is a humble little big man in the heart of the Motherland of Africa, West Africa to be exact in Ghana, that has caught the attention of Matik Magazine. His name is Cephas Kwegyir, who has the heart of a lion and is eager to get an opportunity to play professionally in the best leagues that will bless him with the chance to be the next superstar. Cephas Kwegyir is Coached by Jerry Abbey for a team called Mighty River. Cephas has been playing competitively since he was 9 years old and at a tender age of 16 he has been training hard for an opportunity. Cephas is a born leader that has been elected Captain on all of the teams he has played on since U12. Cephas is no doubt an extraordinary player with lots of skills to add to his arsenal. Cephas is naturally left footed but on odd occasions can kick the ball with precision with both feet. This ambidextrous young star is on the verge of becoming a superstar and has been raised with  absolute discipline by his parents.
