I’m over the moon for the Black Stars. Serbia lost a man on a red card late, and then got caught with an accidental handball in the penalty area, which set up a penalty kick. Ghana held on, and tallied up three crucial points in Group D, which also has Germany and Australia
Ghana had some additional chances which were thisclose to being scored, so on one level, the score should’ve been 3-0 or 4-0 – but soccer, more than most sports, is a game of fractions, inches, and angles.
The Black Stars will take 1-0, thank you very much. In this group, playing in their home continent, I like their chances.
