one thing i'd like to say to those fanatic supporters of ghana or hungary or whatever. it's good to hope that your supporting team wins, but don't underrate the opponent. it only makes your supporting team look bad. please show more mature behavior. in person i rather hope that ghana or brazil gets the trophy but you also should show respect to your opponents.

Please its just a game. Like all games stop the LOUD TALK and let's have fun! where from this comparison. By simple knowledge of statistics if u have a population of 23mil and 150mil each with great football talent definitely by default the numbers should count. It works for Brazil. stop the NOISE and get to work!!

"The first half was not good for us, but in the second half we scored and showed our strength, power and determination. I think overall, my team was the stronger side, but we didn't start very well," Sellas Tetteh, Ghana coach.
