Ghana Team for 2010 World Cup

Ghana has qualified for the FIFA World Cup finals a second time, after they were the only African side to have crossed over into the knockout stage from the group stage in the 2006 World Cup. The Black Stars have been a fast rising football team to have won four CAF African Cup of Nations, two U-17 FIFA World Cups and are the only African nation to have won the FIFA U-20 World Cup beating Brazil on penalties in 2009. Ghana seems eager to play at the World Cup following their 2006 defeat of Czech Republic and the USA before bowing down to the mighty Brazilians.
 
Ghana went into the Group stages with full fervor winning the first four games and qualifying for the World Cup finals before losing 1-0 to Libya. In June 2009 they defeated both Mali and Sudan. The Black Stars were only a bit shaky in the first round when lost a match apiece to Libya and Gabon, but topped them on goal difference.
 
Chelsea’s Michael Essien teamed with Sulley muntari and Stephen Appiah form the powerful midfield Ghana is known for, capable of diffusing attacks as well as creating them. With the Wigan Athletic Goalkeeper Richard Kingson tending the posts, the defense is kept tight by John Mensah and John Paintsil.
 
Yugoslavian Milovan Rajevac took over the coaching responsibility after Claude Le Roy’s departure. He played for Yugoslavia as a defender, later coached the Red Star Brigade and led the Serbian team FK Borac to their first-ever qualification for a European tournament
 
This young Ghanaian team is all set to play in the World Cup finals for the second time in the country’s football history and will be hoping to improve on their performance at the 2006 World Cup finals.
