Going, Going, GHANA!!!
What a choke job! Tell me you watched this game. World Cup knockout, elimination round, the entire continent of Africa on your shoulders and cough, cough. This game was tied going into overtime. First 15 minutes, no goal. Second half of overtime, no score until the last minute when Ghana was awarded a penalty kick. Up comes Asamoah Gyan and shanks it off the top bar. Game goes to a shootout and the captain of Ghana, non-nonchalantly places the ball, then takes 2 steps back and kicks it softer than a 3-year old. Uruguay goalkeeper Fernando Muslera barely has to move and just like that, Ghana is down a goal. Uruguay makes an almost fatal error when Maxi Pereira sent the next kick 100 yards over the goalie (how do you miss by that much?) Didn’t matter though, because Uruguay choked again and the game was over. This was in Ghana’s hands. They had it. All they had to do was close it out. And now, instead of the final four, they’re headed home. Good thing for them, it won’t be too long of a flight. Tough break for Ghana. They played a great game. Too inexperienced for them.
