South Africa failed to beat Mexico on Friday, Nigeria bow down to Argentina on Saturday (despite all their pre-match warnings against Diego Maradona’s side). Now what will Ghana achieve on Sunday afternoon? Can they be the first sub-Saharan nation to record a victory in the first ever World Cup tournament held on African soil?
Ghana haven’t played a World Cup match since June 27, 2006. On that day, they were thrown out from the 2006 World Cup in Germany following a 3-0 defeat to Brazil in a match accused of being fixed. During the period of almost four years that followed this event, Ghana’s national football team, the Black Stars, have improved as a unit. Like Mexico, Ghana can also boast of a great blend of young and experienced players.
Serbia and Ghana will lock horns at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium in Pretoria at 14:00 GMT on Sunday. Both teams will be playing their 2010 FIFA World Cup opening match
