The presence of world class midfielders Michael Essien and close pal Sulley Muntari has solidified Ghana’s midfield ahead of next year’s 2014 FIFA World Cup.
The two Ghanaian enforcers were undoubtedly the best players on the field as the Black Stars hammered Egypt 6-1 in the first leg of the World Cup play-off on Tuesday.
The duo combined effectively and made nonsense of the pedigree of the Egyptian with a world-class performance that continues to earn reviews.
The presence of the two experienced players has certainly coagulated the set-up ahead of the return fixture of the qualifier in Cairo next month and the World Cup proper in sight.
The two players were imperious at the heart of the midfield and will prove crucial during a potential third successive World Cup berth in Brazil.
The Black Stars are managed a resounding 6-1 win at the Baba Yara stadium to dash the hopes of the North African countries in an unprecedented humiliating result that saw the Pharaohs’ long-held World Cup qualification hopes all but shattered.
