Yesterday the Black Stars kicked expectations and skepticism to the curb in what was perceived by many football pundits as being “an uphill challenge” against Egypt’s multiple-time WC qualifier The Pharaohs.
The words being used to describe what Ghana did to Egypt include “thrashed”, “crushed” and “run a riot”. But to me, this game was one of the most beautiful shows of leg action the Ghanaian National team has exhibited in a long time. It’s so beautiful, I had to share.
Congrats again to the Black Stars and Coach Kwasi Appiah – who also showed some of his detractors, ha! – and all the best as we chart our course to Brazil 2014 (and avenge the WC finale we were Suarezed out of :P)! You make Ghana proud!
After all is said and done, even the Pharaohs looked up to the Stars ;)
