Coronavirus can take football out of the stadiums but cannot take the football out of the legs.
The recent global pandemic has brought virtually every life activity to a stand-still especially events that involves mass gathering which includes football.
Most leagues across the world have been suspended including the Women’s Premier League in Ghana as a measure of combating the highly-contagious pandemic.
As fans and footballers self-isolate, the new social media trend #StayAtHomeChallenge has caught fire with both elite players and fans finding creative ways of entertaining themselves.
Previously, we’ve seen the likes of the mannequin challenge, the ice bucket challenge and the bottle cap challenge.
So what’s the #StayAtHomeChallenge?
The aim is to do as many keepie uppies (totas/tatis) as possible with a roll of toilet paper and sharing the success and failures on social media.
One-time winners of the Sanford Women’s FA Cup, Police Ladies have seen their players take up the challenge.
Ivy Koli, Cynthia Adjei, Ruth Appiah, goalkeeper Nana Ama Asantewaa and winger Alberta Asante have all showcased their skill in the challenge.
Below is a video of them engaging in the social media trend:
