Ghana is the only reasonably established African team
that could qualify for the world cup. 2 victories over
South Africa secured their ticket.
The big star of Ghana is Chelseas £24.4 million man
Michael Essien. Other familiar names are his ingenius
midfield colleague and captain Appiah of Fenerbahce,
Muntari of Udinese and Amoah of Dortmund.
You see, the midfield is top, if defence and attack can keep
up with that will show. Maybe Ghana can bother
Czech Republic and/or the USA.
The odds on Ghana as world cup winner were certainly extremely high
- 201.0 at Betandwin.
For a bet on group winner Ghana you get 13.0.
For a bet on Ghana reaching the last 16 you get 3.10.
