Ghana captain Stephen Appiah eye 2014 World Cup success in Brazil

Ghana midfielder Stephen Appiah believes the nation will improve on their World Cup pedigree in Brazil 2014.

The Black Stars reached the quarter-finals of the first global showpiece on African soil and were denied passage into the last-four after suffering a 4-2 shootout defeat at the hands of Uruguay.

However, even before the tie went to the dreaded lottery, the Black Stars were foiled by a Luis Suarez handball on the line, which prevented a certain goal.

Asamoah Gyan hit the crossbar with the ensuing penalty to add to the side’s heartache, but Appiah is confident Ghana will be back with a vengeance in 2014.

“We did our best for Ghana and Africa, but luck was not on our side,” he said after the Black Stars arrived to a hero’s welcome at the Kotoko International Airport in Accra.

“I am not a prophet, but I want to say that that we will qualify for the next World Cup in 2014.

“We will be battle-ready as title contenders.”

    Am from Nairobi Kenya and i watched how the Ghanians played soccer and am so impressed even my three year son knows who Gyan is a winner. Keep up the good ball and God will be with you during 2014 which is just around the corner. U might have lost but you are winners, Obviously Uruguay cheated, and we all know cheaters dont go far

    God bless Ghana, you did Africa proud.

    Cheers
