AFCON 2008

AFCON 2008

By Ta’killa

My writer covering the Afcon Champs in Ghana called Ta’killa will kick of the 2008 Campaign. As the guys said the other day,Im sure we going to be in for a good treat.Some class players on hand

Accra Stadium was packed to capacity, bursting at the seams with colour, sound and vitality.. Yellow, green and red filled the stadiums as both teams have the same colors on their flags but it was evident that the host nation had all the support.. In all honesty the match didnt live up to expectation.. But then again what is expected of the African Nations Cup. Ghana started brightly and for the first 13 minutes kept the tempo flowing and by halftime shouldve won the game.. They hit the bar 3 times in this period.. The second half was a tad it even and when Ghana got the penalty i thought the floodgates would open.. But Guinea fought back and equalised minutes later…It needed something special to win it and forward stepped Sulley Muntari the Portsmouth midfielder as he thundered a left foot drive past a helpless Guinea keeper.. All in all i think Ghana are kak in defense and were hardly tested.. Guinea’s star forward, Bangoura had no idea what to do in the final 3rd and i suggest they book early flights out.. Ghana have the home support which is always tough to overcome, but if they come across teams with power strikers such as Nigeria,Cameroon or Ivory Coast then they too will become casualties..
