Ghana in World Cup
Ghana has competed on the international level in soccer for nearly 50 years. Incredibly, they never qualified for the World Cup Finals until now.
Ghana joins neighbors Cote D'Ivoire and Togo, as well as Angola, as African first-timers in the final tournament. The fifth African team, Tunisia, are old hands at this level.
The question remains, what happened to South Africa? Nigeria? Cameroun, Senegal, Morocco, Egypt?
None of these perennial powerhouses made it, but don't blame the Moroccans--the never lost a match but lost out to the Tunisians, who had won one. As for South Africa, they lost both qualifying matches to the Black Stars, 2-0 and 3-0.
Best of luck to Ghana next year in Germany 06!
