JOHANNESBURG – Defeat for Ghana couldn't come heavier than today's match against Uruguay, losing 4 - 2 on penalty shootouts after strongly demonstrating their superiority to their adversaries. Winning was a must for Ghana, after all, they were the last African team in the tournament, the first ever being played in the African soil.
RUSTENBURG, South Africa – Lightning stroke twice for the United States National Soccer team today as Ghana, once again, eliminated them from the World Cup 2010 as they did on the previous world Cup in 2006, with the same score of 2 - 1.
What a great show for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa; the very first world up to be played on African soil. With so much negativity following the pick of an African country hosting the world cup, South Africa has set the African standard again by providing an unbelievable great opening show in the eyes of the entire world.
IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS we will be experiencing History in the Making, as South Africa becomes the first African country to host the FIFA World Cup on African soil. This is a moment of rejoicing not just for one country, but for an entire continent who has waited many years for this day to come.
