African World Cup Qualifiers: Sudan Vs Ghana

in World-cup

 

The African group D has spiced up with group favorites Ghana setting the early pace with all the three teams still in contention for a place in South Africa 2010 finals. Ghana has made the brightest start in the group with winning their first home fixture of the qualifiers against second placed Benin. They then outplayed Sevilla’s Kanoute led Mali by a 2-0 margin. Sudan on the other hand have all to play for when they play the strongest team in the group as they have solitary point to show for their efforts in the two matches they have played in their campaign. They did well when they held a good Mali side at home to get a valuable point but looked lackluster when they came against Benin in an away game. The former four time CAF African champions qualified for the World cup in Germany  in the last edition for the first time in history and had a dream start when they beat highly fancied Czech Republic and USA before the were eliminated by a star studded Brazil in the second round. The former two time under 17 FIFA World cup champions had been in good form off late when as host they were beaten in the semi finals of the continental cup last year owing largely to injuries and suspension. Sudan has been one of the founders of the Confederation of African Football and has a rich history of football. They have been among the earliest FIFA members representing Africa. They were the third nation from Africa to enter FIFA World Cup preliminaries but are yet to make it to the finals of the World cup. The Sukoor Al-Jediane would though be confident with their strong showings in the recent past noticeably their encouraging showing at the last year’s Ghana 2008. With six crucial points at stake in the round of double header at the mid way stage of the qualifiers and with only two round of matches to be played in the qualifiers, favorable results in these two matches can well give a decisive edge to the teams. Ghana has plenty to choose from with the likes of Chelsea number 5 Michael Essien leading the midfield. Sulley Muntari is another fast improving midfielder. The Black Stars have Manuel Agogo, Tagoe and Amoah to score and not to forget the Michael Essien’s usual thunderbolts from outside the penalty area. Sudan on the other hand has some good players who can win matches on their own. They do not possess the likes of Essiens but rely on team work and coordination. The Sukoor Al-Jediane has in the camp the likes of Faisal Agab with Muhammad Tahir and Haytam Kamal also providing a helpful hand. As history has shown, Football results are difficult to predict.
