Ghana World Cup bound?

Ghana has for many years been one of the leading African football nations. However, world cup glory has so far escaped the "Black Stars". I am becoming happier, that I will be in Ghana next year, when they might make their first appearance in the World Cup. Yesterday, the Black Stars took a huge leap towards making this dream come true for me (as well as for 20 million Ghanaians): In a crucial qualifier in Johannesburg, Ghana defeated South Africa 2-0, with goals by Matthew Amoah from Vitesse Arnhem and Michael Essien from Olympique Lyon.
Ghana is now leading Group 2 in the African World Cup qualifiers. They have two games left, against Congo and Cape Verde. I do hope to be celebrating with the rest of Ghana very soon!
