Ghana Won!!!

Okay, as you all can probably tell, I'm not exactly Miss Sporty. To say the least. But it was hard not to get excited Friday night when Ghana defeated Brazil in the final of the Under-20 World Cup! Everyone was glued to the television, including me. After being tied throughout the game, and an intense overtime, Ghana won 4-3. As a result, Ghana became the first African side to qualify for South Africa 2010 World Cup.

Needless to say, everyone in Ghana was excited, including my sleepy village. Hoards of young men were running up and down the street celebrating, and I can only imagine what Accra was like!

Anyways, I don't know if you guys follow soccer. But now that Ghana will be competing for the World Cup, I'll be posting a lot more about Ghanaian football.
