Ghana just pulled off the biggest upset of this World Cup. They pumped in two great goals and certainly looked set to score more if it weren’t for Cech in the Czech goal. Ghana completely deserved the victory as they kept attacking after their first goal in the second minute. They definitely came out today as a rejuvenated team after their loss against Italy. I was more impressed with Ghana’s continuing attacking style in spite of being a goal up and even the penalty kick miss did not get them down.
With this victory, the ‘group of death’ is thrown wide open and before this match, USA was all ready to pack their bags if they lost against Italy (realistic possibility given the way they played against Czechs). Now, it will be all down to goal differential calculation. But freak…well-deserved victories like these make the World Cup such an exciting event. Truly, as the WC ad says, one game changes everything.
