2014 World Cup: Ghana land in Fortaleza to play Germany tomorrow

Ghana

Ghana

Ghana landed in Fortaleza on Friday afternoon and will hold their final training session ahead of the World Cup Group G meeting with Germany.

The Black Stars made the 1:10-minute flight from Maceio as all of the 23-man squad were on board.

The team touched down half-an-hour after midday in Brazil [4:30GMT].

Kwesi Appiah’s men will train later in the day at the Estadio Castelao, the match venue.

Ghana, who lost their opener to USA in a 2-1 score line, must win to stand a chance of progressing to the round of 16.

Both sides met at the 2010 finals in South Africa and it was a Mesut Ozil goal which separated the two sides in a final Group D match.

    Its over for Ghana. I just don’t see how Ghana could progress. Its not going to happen. I am sorry.

    Akwesi Appiah has destroyed the Ghana Black Stars. He needs to go. He never played in the world cup so he was clueless

    Secondly I have changed my opinion of Kwarasey. I do not believe he is worth calling any longer to the Black Stars.

      Ghana would have been in the finals of this world cup if we had a tactical and effective coach. A coach who does not even have his starting eleven even at the commencement of the world cup is just like a quack doctor. And just as we have quack doctors, there are also quack coaches. The BS have good players being assembled together, but the inefficacy of the coach has caused the downfall of the BS in this most important tournament.

      • Nana Adwoa T. Kese says:

        Thank you sir for saying the open truth. A lot of people come in here and the best opinion they can offer is insults. As Aberico said, the coach has the materials but he has no idea has to utilize them. How can any full blooded Ghanaian still believe BS is going to beat the German machine, its possible but the coach has no tactical ideas.
        The black stars technical bench is totally deficient, how could you employed Otto addo, sam duodu, sam addy, stephen appiah, maxell Konadu etc as your technical brain. Sam addy and duodu their knowlege about the game is outmoded,otto addo under 15 0r 18 youth coach, stephen appiah playing in top leagues does not make you a technical brain,
        I have said it over and over. Klinsman beat Ghana from the bench and Loew is going to do the same thing. Akwasi Appiah does not play any tactics and even if he does it is 4-4-2. Against US of A klinsman was playing varying tactics while our own looks lost I mean totally lost. Akwasi Appiah play Afriyie Acquah and allow Rabiu to stay in front of the defence and you will minimised the damage.
        Almost all the German players are carrying injuries play Badu, Rabiu and Acquah who are defensive minded and aggressive to shield the back 4 and we will be okay. Drop John Boye and play Rashid sumaila with Jonathan Mensah, put Essien ( dead horse) at the right back position for ONLY 55MINS, Aful left back. Ayew, Kwadwo Asamoah, KBP and Asamoah Gyan. KPB is going perform perform and perform tomorrow if only our backline can withstand the flood of the German machine. With the line up above you’re playing 5-3-2 with ocassional switch to 4-4-2 and 3-4-3.
        The bedroom pundits who watch soccer for dribbling and goals will come out with insults but Nana adwoa Twekese will definately return fire, Muntari, Opare, John boye, Jordan Ayew are all wasting space.
        Now because Akwasi Appiah is clueless this will be his line up for tomorrow…Kwaarasey, Opare, Mensah, boye, Essien, Rabiu, Muntari, Kwadwo Asamoah, Ayew, KBP, Gyan. Even clueless coach like Clarence Clyde Seedorf did not play them together for more than 20mins.

    German didnt train in a car park so u wil be waloped 5:0
    Viva southern africa

  3. Boardroom says:

    Ghana will beat the Germans 3 – 0 n all haters will disappear from this site .

  4. Milky says:

    I don’t blame the players. I think the players are fine, its the coach. This is exactly what has been happening in most African countries with regards to economic developments. Africa has the resources and ability to develop, but we always screw it up due to bad managements and leadership and this mediocrity style of leadership has managed to manifest itself in African football. Africa’s bane has always been bad leadership and management. And we are seeing it unfold right infront of our faces at AA displays it at the highest level of football.
    AA is not up to the standard yet. Even if we win the world, it wouldn’t be because of his tactics or discipline, it would purely be because of the individual players.

  5. Kwame Larbi says:

    Ghana is going to surprise Germany

  6. SamedgeO says:

    OGYA,you are a foolish man,in fact you are mad

  7. Daniel says:

    l wonder wat Akwasi appiah is thinking when he,s playing. Even making changes is a problem 4 him.
    I think the players are playing with our filling.Our loss to the US was a plan thing to attract promisses of winning bonuses.Evil men.Money money money. God punish them all. Maybe we pamper the players too much.

  8. Boro says:

    Players are scoring by keeping their shots and headings down. Why are our Ghanaian players doing theirs different and wasting all the created chances. What a shame!

  9. No way Ghana can beat Germany.GFA is responsible for apperentce as a coach

  10. banger says:

    EFF U ARE A FUCKING BABOON REJECT.

  11. GFA is responsible for thise apperentice as a coach.

  12. benito says:

    It’s amazing how people can easily give up,.if you live your life like that then you can’t achieve anything in this life.football can be very unpredictable so keep believing in our team and pull some surprises,don’t throw in the towel.”IMPOSSIBLE is NOTHING”

    • Nana Adwoa T. Kese says:

      The comparison you’re given is laughable sir. If you’re being realistic then you could have detected the individual potency of the German team and its technical handlers.And how bankrupt Akwasi Appiah is tactically. Think please

  13. Eddy says:

    You jeff wat is ur problem. Ghanaians will sit here nd support Nigeria nd dey will go nd play something like ibe para tonament. Poor passes, not even a goal. We dat we played de beautiful ball u sit down der nd tell us trush. U wait nd see, common hund. will score double double. U re in dat grp nd cannot make Africa proud. In fact nigeria is a shame to Africa. If u ever score a goal in dis tornament it means ur oponents trained in de bush. uncevilised being. U must be very foolish. U go take dos palm wine wey u bus uno knw wat u go do suf u go come wrep shit for gh page

  14. Philip Adu says:

  15. SHANGO says:

  16. Rashid says:

    Ghana is winning tomorrow and i promise you all that !! mark it there ..we are sure going to win and move to the group stages….i swear..have said it

  17. Nana(RSA) says:

    We can only survive with this line up:
    Kwarasey/Dauda

    Boye-Essien-Mensah- Wakaso.

    Afriyie Acquah – Agyeman Badu

    Dede-Kevin Prince- Kwadwo Asamoah

    Gyan.

    Formation 4-5-1
    We have to attack them like wounded lion whenever they have the ball.

    Essien should organize the defends by telling them what to do everytime. Especially when there is a Corner. Tell the defenders to do man marking not ball watching.
    It doesn’t appear like we have been doing enough practice on set pieces. Our positioning is highly questionable.

    Germans best will be a draw.

  18. coach says:

    Ghana will beat Germany to day with or without our useless coach who has lost more matches than he has won. God punish the greedy and corrupt Nyatakyi who through dubious means appointed this apprentice to coach pur dear national team
    This guy has not even coached a second division team before and has no track record whatsoever, so on what basis was he appointed to coach Ghana? Appiah must go with arrogant and useless Nyatakyi

  19. coach says:

    Germany will suffer the biggest humiliation in their history today, Ghana will beat them 3:1

  20. Dy Jee - Shanghai, China says:

    An Octopus has predicted a win for Ghana in the German Ghana match tonight! May God bless and make this prediction come true, God luck to the Black Stars and all Ghanaians, Amen!!!

      What powers is the octopus using?
      God is Light.
      Light and darkness have nothing in common.
      Forget the octo…whatever.
      Focus on He who came by Water and Blood, Jesus Christ and you shall know the truth.
      The Truth may not be what you would like to hear but it will set you free from all this headache,

  21. ja says:

    Fools is germans not human or are they God that you can say they will beat Ghana. Idiots come on comot for here. Down fall people.

  26. readi 2 dye says:

    Actually I am disappointed with the doubters on this forum…. Where is ur balls….sorry nana adwoa… No diss…but how can we go to war thinking we gon loss…y’all acting like the dumb french who folded when the Hitler machine came to its borders instead of acting like the British who stood tall n fought till the end…..am not gon say we gon beat Germany but we can… Evidence from this world cup shows that the ball bounces in a weird way sometimes….look what happen to spain world cup champions just 4 years ago, with one of the best coaches I the world. GHANA means WARRIOR KING so please don’t come out like a dog with it’s tail between his legs…US black folks got start some where n it’s starts with AA. How long we gon depend on these aliens to do for us what if we try harder, can do for ourselves. According those calling for foreign coaches n so called tactician,…African politicians are dumb so let’s allow aliens to comeback n preside over us….I know our coach can be stubborn sometimes but this is the highest level he has been n am pretty sure he will be an improved coach if he can bring us back in 4 years..or maybe coach Duncan or silas tetteh.don’t care if it takes a 1000 years will rather give a Blackman the reins than some dogone alien..like I said am not saying we gon win, but yes we can…please don’t be shy to REP UR CITY regardless….A SETBACK IS A SETUP FOR A COMEBACK. GH 4 LIFE.

    • Nana Adwoa T. Kese says:

      This is not a matter of patriotism its calling a spad a spad. Why messing up the truth with politics, yes Nana Adwoa twekese has already folded because she has seen the light( kindly go to youtube and find a video on ” Allegory of the cave”). Black man can manage his own affairs only and only if they can be honest, firm, use common sense, hardwork and stay focus.
      Yes big teams like spain, england, italy and cameroun are loosing but to a better teams not an experimental team like U.S.A. The USMNT has a weak defence and the attack became very weak when Altidore went out and we still couldn’t beat them because we lack common sense approach and bad tactics.
      Ghanaians are suffering Economically because of people like you who don’t want to accept the truth of bad governance and bad nation management by our own because you want black man to handle its own affairs whiles the needy suffers.
      Think twice sir.

    Stop using my Id u coward fool. If u are not brave enough to say ur piece of mind with ur own Id then keep mute. Stupid fool. The next time u use my id like u have been using Selfmade’s id to write nonsense, i will curse u!

  28. jojo sackey says:

    @nana adwoa T Kese whether akwasi appiah or some of the players are useless to you or not . Kindly leave us alone to work ,we still believe in our coach and the players . America scored us so what, even the Mighty Spain with all their tactics and star players were scored .

    PLEASE LEAVE OUR KWASI APPIAH ,BACKROOM STAFF AND PLAYERS ALONE TO CONCENTRATE. whether they win or loose they are ours and we are proud in investing in our own , to be world class rather than investing in foreigners

  29. Piotoo says:

    Who thought Costa Rica will ever beat the Italians? Soccer is very unpredictable and anything can happen on the field of play. I believe the Black stars will win only when AA is not the coach. AA is clueless and tactically bankrupt. Adomah is just a waste of tax payers money. AA has given Adomah several chance for him to prove himself but always flops. He keeps talking about him having pace….The guy is just not good. After this game AA should be sacked. The previous Serbian Coaches Ghana had were good tactically. At least you can see some tactics when they play but with AA you see nothing. Muahhh Coach

  30. Nana Adwoa T. Kese says:

    @ jojo sackey. This is my problem with some Ghanaians always shielding the truth. Akwasi Appiah lack the know how to hold the office like Mahama, Akuffo Addo etc. Critized them and people like you will be offended.
    Kwame Nkrumah was the first person to come up the with theory ” That new Africa is ready to fight his own battles and show that after all the black man is capable of managing his own affairs”. Please dig very into the legacy of Kwame Nkrumah and you will realised that it was another political talk. Africans can manage our own affairs if only we can be firm and honest. First Opare, Boye, Essien, Muntari, Rabiu etc were all carrying injuries throughout the season on their various teams and all of a sudden they became fit. secondly, John boye played less then a 119mins in the entire French league..injuries injuries. Thirdly, why is Rashid sumaila and Afriyie Acquah not playing. These two a midfielder and a defender played the entire league in their teams; they are fit, quick, potent and hungry to perform. Where are their positions in the team ..bench while muntari and boye keeping getting tire in 55mins and losing all 50 50 balls.
    Be honest with yourself sir. Ghanaians don’t like the truth our coach is tactically bankrupt period. Listen England, spain and Italy lost to good teams not a porous team like U.S.A; HOW CAN A COACH SAY I’M WAITING FOR MY OPPONENTS TO GET TIRED BEFORE I PLAY MY POTENT ATTACKING MIDFIELDER.
    I am more patriotic the you are; but I call a spad a spad. Akwasi Appiah, the backroom staff and their methods are bankrupt. I am not saying but go all the way back to our matches against Zambia, Egypt, Montenegro, Holland, Turkey and south Korea and you will realised AA does not play any tactics except 4-4-2.
