Ghana soccer fans happy with Black Stars first CAN 2012 outing

Published on: 06 September 2010

Some soccer fans in Ghana on Sunday expressed happiness with the impressive performance put up by the senior national team, their first group game in a match that was telecast live from Mbabane, the Swazi capital in Accra.

The Black Stars walloped their Swazi counterparts 3-0 at their own home soil as Andre Dede Ayew hit the back of the net in the early minutes of the game when he connected a cross from Ghanaian Udinese international Kwadwo Asamoah.

Prince Tagoe added another goal in the second half while defender Hans Adu Sarpei increased the tally to 3-0 in the latter part of the game.

By this victory, Kwame Kwakwa, a banker told APA that the Stars had begun the 2012 qualification campaign on a high note and that they have similarly broken the “one goal” project that bedevilled the team in 2009 to the latter part of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

The victory, according to Hannah Mensah, a sports journalist, indicates that Coach Milovan Rajevac means business and wants to prove to soccer fans that he is committed to the four-year contract he just signed with the Ghana Football Association.

    It was only broken because he resorted to our traditional 4-4-2. Here again, we found Prince Tagoe scoring because he was in his usual position.even Hans Saipei had the opportunity to score his first international goal for Ghana.Tell me again what Samuel Inkoom was brought in to do? he had to play by all means because he was played out of position? what we are forgetting here is that we are a country full of midfield talents and traditionally, we have been scoring from our midfielders. Who can say Muntari is not the second highest goal scorer after Asamoah Gyan in this black star setup? i stand to be corrected.I just hope that the coach will realise that we as Ghanaians need goals and not only victories. Scoring goals keeps our opponents in a state of fear. And that is exactly what we want.

    @Jerro, Muntari is rubbish now, no team wants him. He is very indiscipline and lacks the will nowadays to function properly as a team player. He threatend to beat up Andre Ayew during the World cup! until he learns the hard way he will be a destabilizing factor for our structured team. It took Ghana 6 - 10 years to recover after the Ayew - Akunnor - Yeboah feud. I rest my case!

    @ DKLONDON,thanks brother for this important information about sulley muntari. I have never liked his behaviour one bit but i am only interested in the general well being of the blackstar team. The coach is definately one of serious problems IN THE BLACKS. In europe where i believe you live in, most senior players like muntari,laryea,and appiah needed to be spoken to before being jettisoned like old clothes for new ones. This was not done and the players were being humiliated here and there.Am too proud of the info you gave me of what actually transpired during the world cup but i also think the fustration of the senior players is too much. Do you honestly think appiah,laryea and co are truly happy of the events now?
