CAN 2012 Files EP13: There Is Just Something About The Black Stars


Goran Stevanovic had promised some sweet attacking football ahead of the quarter final game against Tunisia. Yet, like all the other games during AFCON 2012, his team’s performance will go down as some of the most uninspired since the Black Stars’ rediscovered their rhythm sometime in 2006.

While the entire nation expected Stevanovic’s ‘better football plan’ to unfold, it was the resilience and fighting spirit of the team which came to the light.

Both Ghana and Tunisia played some determined football which saw its first share of physical encounters, dramatic simulations and cards.

But in the end, Tunisia and the rest of Africa must have learnt that lesson which Botswana, Guinea and Mali are taking home – you don’t bring the fight to the Black Stars and expect to win.

The semi-final game against Zambia on Wednesday does not look like it will be easy. Their seamless blend of finesse and fitness will pose many difficulties to the Black Stars who have looked shaky all throughout this tournament.

But there is just something about the Black Stars that makes them to be no one’s pushovers and Zambia are about to learn this in a very heart breaking manner.
