Go baGhana baGhana!!

With Ghana being the only African team left in the 2010 Fifa World Cup, the whole nation is feeling the Ghana fever as we stand united behind the Black Stars!

Here’s some interesting facts about Ghana:

  • The word Ghana means Warrior King
  • Ghana were the youngest team at Germany 2006, with an average age of just under 24 years.
  • Asamoah Gyan scored the fastest goal of the 2006 FIFA World Cup after 68 seconds in their 2-1 win over Czech Republic. It was also Ghana’s first-ever goal in the finals.
  • Ghana lost 3-0 to Brazil in the second round of Germany 2006, but they were without the talismanic Michael Essien, who was suspended.

The star players

Although Ghana lack the attacking firepower of many African sides, they rely most prominently on a world class midfield led by Michael Essien. The Chelsea man usually pairs with Sulley Muntari and captain Stephen Appiah to form a formidable engine room capable of both stifling attacks and creating them. Two of the trio Asamoah Gyan, Junior Agogo and Matthew Amoah usually operate in attack, while the England-based duo of John Mensah and John Paintsil keep the back tight in front of another Premier League player, goalkeeper Richard Kingson.
