If there’s one thing you can say about the Ghana vs England match last night it’s that the Black Stars where not short of supporters. Over 21,000 Ghanaians turned up to watch the game at Wembley stadium and from my sofa at home the display of black, yellow, green and red in the crowds was remarkable.
Now the score may have resulted in a draw but nevertheless the feeling of unity and togetherness didn’t go unrecognised even by England fans. When Asamoah Gyan scored the equalizing goal in the 90th minute of the game the excitement of the crowd was as if we had won the World Cup and why not.
To those who aren’t interested in football or are not Ghanaian you may not have been able to understand the importance of yesterday or why we were so excited about what took place but I’m sure for many it wasn’t even about football or even the final score but the opportunity to celebrate something that brings everyone together. Football is one of the biggest sports in the whole world and our country was part of that and for all those who bought a ticket to watch our boys play their heart out definitely got a gripping game.
When Gyan scored at the very last minute I can embarrassingly say I threw myself to the ground and flew into the corner table ALL Ghanaians have in their houses, you all know which ones I’m talking about the three tables small, medium, large which cup each other. Throughout the game my heart was beating like crazy,so when we finally got one in the back of the net all I was thinking is Thank God we didn’t lose.
