Greetings from Ghana! Akwaaba! Obviously, I did not see the game as I was fighting off mosquitoes in bed at the time but I did read the official report this afternoon of the loss to Houston. Were we robbed? Sounds like the penalty decision was dubious, to say the least. Anybody care to comment on that or anything else about the game for that matter (e.g McManus sending off)? Most importantly, how did we play? Did we manage to keep up the intensity of last week?
This country is soccer mad. Pictures everywhere of Michael Essien and the rest of the Black Stars team. In the house where I am staying, there is a big poster of Essien as Man of the Match in the Ghana victory over the US in the last World Cup.They also seem to be big fans of English soccer. I tell them my son is a Chelsea fan and that usually starts a conversation pretty easily. Look forward to your comments.
