Uruguay: This nation is an ex-host and winner of the FIFA World Cup. They play well as a non-gifted team. They did well to reach here because they beat 2010 FIFA World Cup host, South Africa 3-0. That has made peace in our minds that we lost to a good team. We were loyal and committed to their cause until this point. After all, they depend on one man, ex-Manchester United forward, Diego Forlan. They will be playing their last match tomorrow.
Ghana: This African team has made the continent proud. They are a machine moulded out of youths hungry for success. The Ghana youth development programme should be made to filter to Nigeria, who still think tested and tired Kanu can deliver anything anywhere. We appreciate our stars. They must, on their part, acknowledge the passage of time.
Ghana are quick and decisive in tackles. They have an excellent attacking pace. They had been unfortunate in finding the net from open play until the last game against USA. Things are now different and they have an amazing self belief. In this self-motivating game, they will not have anything to worry about because the 2 Mensahs will lock out Forlan. Asamoah Gyan will complete Ghana offensive as Africa reaches its first ever FIFA World Cup semi-final.
I congratulate Africa well in advance. Tell me how you will celebrate that victory tomorrow.
