World Cup heartbreak for Ghana and Africa
In this tournament's 80-year history, surely there has never been such agony for a country, and a continent.
says sporting life.com after Ghana’s dramatic- and heartbreaking- exit from the World Cup last night.
We were just a penalty kick away from an African side making the World Cup semi-finals for the first time in history.
Technically, I thought Ghana in this tournament were miles ahead of England, and indeed much better than Uruguay. They were a joy to watch.
And I think if Gyan had converted his penalty, Ghana would have had a very good chance of beating Holland in the semi-final. But it was not to be- and the wait for an African side to win the World Cup goes on.
I don’t know about you, but I felt sadder after yesterday’s match than I did when England’s bunch of overrated millionaires lost to Germany.
