Chelsea star Michael Essien is putting together an African peace match.

Essien has planned a ‘Peace Match’, an Africa XI against a World XI, to be played in Ghana's capital city, Accra, on May 25.

He said: "It's time for Africa to stand up and make peace with each other, stop the fighting, put the guns down and love each other.

"We have come up with this game. Hopefully the players will turn up and we can do something to bring peace.

"The biggest names are Samuel Eto'o, Didier Drogba and the Toure brothers. Ashley Cole is coming down and Florent Malouda. People should expect some world-class players in Ghana."
