After Ghana’s  tremendous performance  at the 2010 FiFA World Cup Tournament, it is not surprising that the fruits of the stars’ labour are pushing up our FIFA rankings. I am happy with the turn Ghana’s football has taken and as negotiations are on the way to secure a play with England, I know when we beat them, our ranking will jump up even more…. Congrats to Ghana footballers and the current management!
