How Ghana players performed in the World Cup clash with Germany

Ghana's Andre Ayew (L) fights for the ball with Germany's Thomas Mueller

Abhishek Mehrotra rates the performance of Ghana players in the Group D game between Germany and the Black Stars on Wednesday.

Ghana

Richard Kingson – 7.5

Was in splendid form after his fumbles in the previous game. Denied the Germans time and again. It was only a spectacular strike by Oezil that finally beat him.

John Pantsil – 6.5

Made some good runs on the right but was let down by Prine Tagoe up front.

John Mensah – 6

Steady performance. Kept Cacau quiet and closed down the German forwards very quickly.

Jonathan Mensah – 6.5

Kept Lukas Podolski on a tight leash throughout the game. The German tried cutting inside or moving to the byline – but Mensah was up to the task.

Hans Sarpei – 6

Did a very good job of keeping the dangerous Thomas Mueller quiet on the left. Played some lovely one-twos with Ayew up front and provided decent service on the flanks.

Kevin Prince Boateng – 6

Had a poor game for his adopted country against his home country. Lahm especially skipped past as if Boateng wasn’t there.

Anthony Annan – 6.5

Protected his backline well and helped Ghana keep up with the Germans in midfield. Was instrumental in keeping Oezil quiet in the first half.

Kwadwo Asamoah – 6.5

Played just behind the Gyan and lent him good support. His movement on the edge of the box was excellent and he gave the German defence numerous headaches.

Prince Tagoe – 5.5

Had a very quiet game indeed. Never looked comfortable on the ball and let his team down with some pathetic control.

Dede Ayew – 7

Was the most energetic and dangerous of the Ghanian forwards. Was denied only by some stunning work from the German goalkeeper.

Asamoah Gyan - 6.5

Showed good awareness in the opposition penalty area and set up Ayew with some superb lay-offs.

Subs

Sully Muntari – 5

Came on with a big reputation but did not do anything to enhance it.

Dominic Adiyiah – n.a

Matthew Amoah – n.a

    No more sulley. Try Quincy now. we need goals.

  2. ghana rep says:

    this is a very poor assement of the team sarpei and paintsil was our worst players especially sarpei. always left his man open and never closed down crosses. all their attacks came to his side.

  3. jesse says:

    Ghana will hopefully score USA and then we will meet Chile or South Korea and then score them too.And then off we are to the semis!!!This actually looks good.We are avoiding both Brazil and then Argentina!!
    Visca El Ghana!

  4. keith from germany says:

    all the same they all did well.anna was my man.

  5. Will says:

    Anthony Annan was outstanding.Now that Milos beloved Serbia has been sent packing, he should concentrate on Ghana and bring the cup home.Well done boys…

  6. Will says:

    Brilliant result. We should have had penalty and Lam sent off. We are not going home without the cup.

  7. obodai says:

    i luv the boys. Dede and kevin made my day.

  8. keith from germany says:

    say it again bro will.athony was the man of the match.his passing accuracy kept ghana in ball possesion which was very important.he never lost ball.
    our main problem is the scoring of goals.we had more chances than germany we could have loaded them could we have uterlized our chances.
    im soo delighted we made cuz even some of our own country men were doubting in our abilities.

  9. john says:

    did u guys see how horrible sulley is. His ego is too big and he does not deserve to play. I prefair tagoe over sulley.

  10. K Duah frm Worcester UK says:

    u re very wrong with KPB.Which match did you watch?

  11. drexy says:

    we need to go 4-4-2 now…..’cos this is it!!

  15. sean says:

    i would like to see Quincy come in for Tagoe. He gives us more of a threat going forward.

  16. Kofi Nikita says:

    Kevin was playing so well and he doesn’t hold the ball for too long and makes great passes alongside with Annan. So i well give him 71%

  17. access says:

    IF MUNTARI,APPIAH AND QUINCY START GHANA WIII BE THE TEAM TO BEAT.SO FUCK U MILO AND FUCK U KWASI APPIAH.WE RESENT U.

  18. napsaa says:

    John Pantsil – 6.5/10 (made a few errors but played well I think he could have done more to stop Ozeil’s shot at net)

    John Mensah – 7/10 (kept Cacau frustrated and stopped any danger that came his way)

    Jonathan Mensah – 6.5/20 (played well lacks experience needs more time)

    Hans Sarpei – 7/10 (had a solid game couldn’t complain

    Kevin Prince Boateng – 6/10 (over played the ball but had some bright spots)

    Anthony Annan – 8/10 (Him and Ayew player of the match they kept the offense flowing and opened up many opportunities)

    Kwadwo Asamoah – 6/10 (so many opportunities to score but over played the ball and wasn’t confident when taking his shots

    Prince Tagoe – 4/1- (played well against Serbia buy holding the ball for his teammates to come help out but the past two games he hasn’t been playing with any passion he is just going through the motions with out any sense of killer instinct the prince of goals? far from it

    Dede Ayew – 8/10 (what can I say about this guy he definitely deserves to start over Muntari, he’s like a Steve Nash creating so many chances with his penetration and passing, but sometimes he gets caught and passes a little too much sometimes you have to eat your cake too

    Asamoah Gyan – 6..5/10 (played well but he simply needs to score if our tactic is to have one lone striker like that than he needs to be at his absolute best

    BUT WHAT DO I KNOW IM JUS A 15 YEAR OLD KID WHO LIKE SOCCER

  19. john says:

    muntari should be kicked of the team. The coach is good. we just dont execute. watch the game before u blast the coach. Dont u remeber the netherlands game. Muntari and appiah and quincy played full game. We lost 4 to 0. so shut it.

  20. Yao says:

    I agree with K. Duah…KPB was one of our best players on the field.

  21. @access says:

    WELL, ENOUGH WITH THE NAME CALLING. BUT 4-4-2 IS AN OUTDATED GAMEPLAN…THE PASSWORD HAVE BEEN FIGURED OUT FOR THAT FORMATION. HOW MANY TEAMS HAVE U SEEN IN THE WORLD CUP THAT PLAYED THE FORMATION…. YOU CANT TELL ME EITHER…”I HAVE SEEN ALL THE GAME” AT WORK ON ESPN360. NO ONE PLAYS THAT FORMATION ANYMORE.

  22. @access says:

    ========================OLELE======================

    JP============VORSAH=======THE ROCK==========SARPEI

    ============ANNAN=======

    QUINCY=============KEVIN P.============DEDE AYEW

    =======================KWADWO ASAMOAH=========

    ========GYAN=================

  23. Eb says:

    Man I was at the game and what you are saying about KP is utter rubbish. he and Dede were the best players in the Ghana team. Tagoe was awful and as for mof mof Muntari,… hmmmmm.

  24. dipole,col-oh says:

    access how do u wanna take this risk to start kofo & sulley in holding midfield, Sulley is the laziest & silliest of tacklers, we will end up playing with 10/9 men! Whoever made the analyses was either drunk or switching in & between the other games. Cus Kevin Boateng was the Man who made/ or brightened the ghana team. His deph touches was very excellent, & for Annan you have nothing to say, he was Awesome, I was impressed with young Jonathan Mensah!!!

  25. A concerned citizen [ U.S.A] says:

    Kevin Prince Boateng did very well except Prince Tagoe who has flopped throughout…..But Coach Milo likes fielding him

  26. de4ma40 says:

    i think this match fixed during the break

  27. nana says:

    i think the rate given to ANTHONY ANNAN is not accurate he deserve a 9 he did the dirty work on midfield and he was the only player today who puts the ball on the ground, ghana vrs usa ghana will win.

  28. access says:

    FORMATION AND TACTICE COUNT. QUINCY SHOULD START AHEARD OF TAGOE.THE BLACK STARS CAN GO TO THE FINALS.

  29. access says:

    MORDEN FOOTBALL IS ABOUT RESULT SO FROM HERE GOIN GHANA SHOULD WIN IN DIRTY WAY EVEN WIT TEN MEN U20 DID SO THE BLACK STARS SHOULD DO IT TOO.GHANA WILL WIN THIS WORLD CUP FOR AFRICA.

  30. Germany Base Ghanian says:

    The boyz are good but coach Milo why allways Tagoe?

  31. et canada says:

    because the coach dont read our comments.

  32. simon attie says:

    Hey Guys, I think we are all trying to hide from the truth. 1. Olele did well but how can he explain the repetition of kicking all the goal kicks straight to the height advantage of the Germans, did he not notice that a s a profesional.
    2. Painstil did well but was too over elaborating.
    3. Sarpei played above normal and was very insrumental in attack, though we all know he is slow to recorver but very profesional.4. Jonathan was very good but needs more games to mature.5. John mensah was o.k but we could all see that he was protecting himself and thus could not give out his best but stil the rock of the defence.6. Annan was good but at time looked childish though he was the strongest in this match, we shpuld know that we are in the world cup. 7.Tagoe i dont know why we keep using this player when he has proven beyoun doubt that he is no good at all.8. Prince is the best thing to happen for the black stars but in this match he was surely afraid and did not give it all out, i understand his feelings and he was scared from all angles either to create a foul or be fouled.9. Gyan is now becoming swollen headed and must be talked to, at times looked like he was toying.10. Kodjo asamoah did not belong to this game at all, he was selfish ,played like a school boy and missed to many chances and i dont believe his performance in this worl cup is rated high.11. Ayew is always in the dream land, he has exceptional skills but always plays to the galary. if he uses his dribling skills to move on defenders i believ he can create more penalties and chances, He always looks tired after 60 minutes.
    Subs , Sulley must know now that football is played by the foot not the mouth. He is not the sulley we know so he should stop his braging. Mathew has not been giving any playing time and so dominic.
    The coach i dont know but looks very slumby expecially in his changes. if you read the gane plan of the germans dominic would been grat to start with gyan behind him and abeyi on the flanks with the old appiah given at least 30 minutes in the second half.its high time the coach started using samuel inkoom and john mensah is looking really tired with his back problem. As for akwasi appiah i am surpised because he should also have a word as an assitant and the greatest left back the country produced must know how to marshall the defence. I think if the stuborn coach will listen a little to advice and play his cards well and use some of the best 23 materials he has we have the best chance to advance to advance. some of the players being used regularly have become big headed. A word to the wise.

  33. nana kwame tenkorang asante says:

    it about time kwadwo asamoah started playing like the kwadwo we know he shd have put that ball away.
    as for prince i think he shd be put at the bench.

  34. papa0078 says:

    QUINCY TO START AND MUNTARI TO BE SENT HOME COZ RILY HE IS AN UTTER USELESS PLAYER!

  35. ahmed bin ahmed says:

    pardon me, kwesi appiah is not the greatest “3″ the country has produced: how will you place ayi acquah, oliver acquah, sam acquah, or mr o ansah of blessed memory? yes kwesi appiah need be more in discussion with his boss in the the selection/substitution process

  36. Elias Wayne says:

    As long as Ghana keeps playing Prince Tagoe ahead of Quincy Owusu Abeyie,Sulley Muntari and Dminic Adiyia they will not make any further mark in the ongoing tournament. They are only playing 10 against other teams.

  37. ortison blinks says:

    i think it is about time sulley quit the team coz he is not doing the team anygood he is not the sulley we use to know anymore am impressed about ayew’s performance in this tournament and prince with annan i like the guys

  38. stan j says:

    why is dominic not playing? we need a skilful player like him who can score goals as well. i hope muntari does not bring his poison of dissension into the squad he has no discipline
