BlackStars bid farewell to World Cup dreams… Ghana must go

IMG_9676I was rooting for Ghana! Well of course I was – I’m Ghanaian after all.

And I thought the Black Stars played really well, but unfortunately USA’s 2-1 victory and a 0-0 draw against Germany means they’re out after losing to Portugal 2-1 today. I’m still #TeamAfrica as  Nigeria and Algeria qualify into the final 16! And it goes without saying, I’m supporting Brazil too (and many of the other Latin American countries  – this is what happens when you have friends all over the world!)

The Ghana team seems

to have been muddled in some drama or another over payment and it’s alleged the President of the West African nation, John Dramani Manama flew in $3million into Brazil settle a dispute over payment for the unhappy players who even threatened to boycott their games.

And to top it off Sulley Muntari and Kevin-Prince Boateng have been expelled from Ghana’s World Cup squad for alleged indiscipline.

Too much drama!

Well, ironically I’m about to end my day with Taiye Selasi’s Ghana Must Go… Fitting title.
