Ghana Black Stars Did Excellent, NO BAD TALKS…

As I watched the game between Ghana and Ivory Coast, I noticed the black stars did pretty awesome and should not be blamed for losing the cup to their opponent. Both sides were good, and they gave their all, both sides had a couple of chances which they could not convert to goals, and in the end, they had to resort to penalties to decide the winner of both sides.

However, I noticed some mistakes. I don’t know why the strikers did not play first before the defenders, and lastly, the goalkeeper, or perhaps they were all scared of the blames. Another one was when opponent managed to miss two penalties in a roll, that was the perfect timing and opportunity for the Ghana black stars to emerge winners but they followed suit and also missed two goals which got a little messy resulting in the goalkeepers having to play to decide the game.

Therefore, I do not like the fact that some people would blame the goalkeeper for the slightest mistake because he did not make any. Yes it is true that he could not make a save and missed his shot, but even the players who were supposed to score missed, so why should the goalkeeper whose job is to just catch the ball be blamed for not being able to score?

Daily 2015 AFCON Round-Up: Pair Of Exciting Victories Send Congo And The Host Through To The Quarter Finals

Equatorial Guinea Vrs Gabon
Equatorial Guinea Vrs Gabon

The hosts of major tournaments often receive a major boost that sometimes see them defy expectations, and watching Equatorial Guinea dispatch a technically superior Gabonese side with a screaming stadium at their back certainly lends credence to that claim.

The final round of games in Group A was finely poised, with all four sides in with a chance of qualification. Gabon challenged the hosts, whilst Congo looked to seal their spot with a win over Burkina Faso.

Equatorial Guinea picked up a 2-0 win in a memorable encounter in front of a packed home crowd, whilst Claude Le Roy’s Congo dispatched Burkina Faso by 2-1.

Gabon was the better side for a long while in their game, but an inspired performance by Felipe Ovono in posts for the hosts kept the game level well past half time.

The first half began at a furious pace, either side proving good on the ball with lighting quick build up play. Gabon had the better opportunities, captain Aubameyang coming closest with a powerful header that was turned away by the hosts’ number one.

Ghana Misses Penalty Against Zambia: Asamoah Gyan Fingered … ‘He Was In A Hurry To Dance’ Says Sports Analyst!

Ghana’s Black Stars failed in their bid to qualify to the finals of the 2012 African Cup of Nations as they lost by a late goal to the Zambians in the first Semi Finals match of the on-going AFCON in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.
The resilient Zambia’s inspirational goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene climbed to the occasion to save an Asamoah Gyan penalty in the early part of the first half. The Zambian goal was scored by substitute Emmanuel Mayuka with just 12 minutes remaining to end the match.
The lost means Ghana will play in the third place match against the Malians who also lost by a lone goal against the tournament favourites; Ivory Coast in the second Semi Finals. Even though the Ghanaians defeated the Malians by two goals to nil in the group stages, the Malians would be a tough nut to crack this time around as they would not allow Ghana to beat them twice in the same tournament.
Many Ghanaians as well as soccer analysts are commenting on the missed chances by the Ghanaians to qualify to the finals. Jerry Kwame Ayensu like many others believes, the Zambian game was a match that the Ghanaians played very well and yet had to lose because of the failed chances.
Even though Ghana created as many chances, the team failed to convert any including Asamoah Gyan’s missed penalty kick.
“I think this was the best game of the tournament by Ghana after creating nine clear chances and missing a penalty. We just have been riding our luck all throughout the tournament but this gives us the opportunity to scour the market very well for the very best of playing materials as we lacked the materials for this tournament at some point.”
