Ghana’s Black Stars escaped been eliminated from the 19th FIFA World Cup in South Africa when they lost to a lone goal against Germany in a keenly contested match last Wednesday.
The lost against the Germans wasn’t enough to eliminate the Ghanaians as Australia defeated the Serbians, which was enough to send the Black Stars into the last 16 through goal difference and face the Americans.
At the time J. A. Kuffour and George W. Bush were presidents of Ghana and U.S.A. respectively, these two teams met in the last World Cup in Germany in 2006 with the former beating the latter 2 goals to 1 to advance to the last 16 before being defeated by the Brazilians.
Now both countries have different presidents John Evans Atta Mills and Barrack Hussien Obama and will face each other in the last 16. What’s your prediction?
