Black Stars aiming to shine back to the summit.
An African powerhouse in the 1960s and at the dawn of the 1980s, Ghana are hoping to regain their status as the continent’s best at the 2013 AFCON.The second most decorated team on the continent with 4 final wins (1963, 1965, 1978 and 1982), Ghana have been living in the shadows of their past.The talented generation of the 1990s led by Abedi Pele and Anthony Yeboah was unable to deliver the nation its fifth continental crown, failing at the finals on penalty shoot-out to Ivory Coast in 1992.Since then, a new generation led by the 2009 U20 World Champions alongside some old hands have been giving the nation hope.The ‘Brazilians of Africa’, buoyed by their brilliant participation at the 2006 and 2010 World Cups, where they finished as the top African side at the finals , as well as their surprised runner up position at the 2010 AFCON give reasons to hope for better things.Under the stewardship of Kwesi Appiah, Ghana are really pleasant to watch on the ball.
