With the FIFA Youth Championship (Egypt 2009) drawing to a close, I have been spending some time looking at the possible performance the two nations (Ghana and Brazil) are going to put up. I have been looking for what it will take for one of these two football nations to outclass the other, and I must say I am struggling to produce a list. 

Surely I would want Ghana to win. Looking at the big picture, The Black Satellites have much more burning reason to win this tournament than Brazil – Vengeance! South Americans (especially Brazil and Argentina) have given Ghana too much trouble in FIFA tournaments. For this reason they have been perpetually placed on Ghana’s wanted list at any level of the beautiful game.

In Ghana, there is an unwritten command to any national team. Brazil and Argentina are to be marked, attacked, defeated and humiliated wherever and whenever any Ghanaian team comes across them.

Ghana’s Black Satellites have a have two-pronged challenge ahead of them. They have the task of stepping beyond the heights achieved by the Black Satellites of 1993 and 2001. Also, within this current squad, an entire nation is hoping  to find enough talent to replace its clearly aging heroes.

In deed, there are those who believe that resident in Sellas Tetteh’s Black Satellites is the potential to finally win Ghana real silverware at the senior level some few years to come.

It is said that, sufficient unto the day, is the evil thereof. While we plan for tomorrow, we must clear today’s load. Gambia must be beaten convincingly; home and away if the hopes Ghana have placed in this team is not going to fizzle into thin air.
