    This is just a friendly match so let's take it easy. Emmanuel Clottey will surely score his first goal for Ghana. Kwesi Appiah must make sure to start Emmanuel Clottey instead of Gyan

    We should take this match very seriously because China want to use Ghana to announce to the world that they have arrived in soccer. Do you know how much money thrown into their league? Did you see their performance of other sports at the Olympics? FIFA Ranking works in this friendly game. Akwasi Appiah should not under-estimate them.

    Does it really matter who starts the game?. Personally, I do not think it makes any difference whether one starts or comes in as a substitute. The quality of play is what matters, not when the player what time the player comes on the field.
