Ghanaian Culture: Ghana National Anthem

The Ghanaian National Anthem
God bless our homeland Ghana,
And make our nation great and strong,
Bold to defend forever
The cause of Freedom and of Right.
Fill our hearts with true humility
Make us cherish fearless honesty,
And help us to resist oppressors’ rule
With all our will and might evermore.

Hail to thy name, O Ghana
To thee we make our solemn vow;
Steadfast to build together
A nation strong in Unity;
With our gifts of mind and strength of arm,
Whether night or day, in the midst of storm,
In every need whate’er the call may be,
To serve thee, Ghana, now and evermore.

Raise high the flag of Ghana,
And one with Africa advance;
Black star of hope and honor,
To all who thirst for liberty;
Where the banner of Ghana free flies,
May the way to freedom truly lie
Arise, arise, O sons of Ghanaland,
And under God march on forevermore.

England vs Ghana: Me FiRi GHANA Clothing

So its more than 10 years since England have “invited” a football team from the African continent to play them at the historical, legendary, now 21st century stadium of Wembley. Now, when we Ghanaians are about to chop some Banku, Jellof, Yam or whatever your heart may at this point desire, traditionally we invite the immediate people around us to chop with us, right?

We don’t know about you, but if someone invites us to chops some of their Papaye fried rice for instance it may bring a tear to our eye. Why you may ask?? Well because that indicates a sign of respect, an appreciation of who we are… Well, we just had to breakdown this historic occasion with food, to illustrate the magnititude of the occassion on March 29th with the match between England and Ghana.

Asamoah Gyan brings Ghanaian culture to UK…

How are YOU showing your Ghanaian Culture to the world…?

Since his arrival in the English Premier League Asamoah Gyan has impacted the UK by not only scoring goals, but influencing the country with his Ghanaian Culture. A few weeks ago we saw how Dutch intentional Zenden “tried” to celebrate with Baby Jet as he danced away to the crowed after scoring yet another goal for Sunderland.

In his latest interview on SkySports viewers got introduced to Baby Jet! Who is Baby Jet? Watch the video below:

Ghana Football Team: 5 Man Shortlist named…

Marcel Desailly is still in the running to become Ghana’s coach after being named in a five-man shortlist for the post on Monday.

The list drawn up by the Ghana Football Association (GFA) also includes ex-Morocco coach Humberto Cuelho.

It is completed by former Partizan Belgrade coach Goran Stevanovic, Turkish coach Can Vanli and Herbert Addo, who coaches in Ghana.

Ghana are looking for a successor to the Serbian Milovan Rajevac.

Rajevac did not …

Ghana held to a 0-0 draw by Saudi Arabia

Ghana despite dominating possession played out a 0-0 draw with Saudi Arabia in a friendly on Wednesday, in Dubai.

A slow start to the game saw Andre Ayew and Asamoah Gyan all go close to finding target.

However, Gyan couldn’t reproduce the form that has seen him score four goals in his last three games for Sunderland as Ghana went close to breaking the deadlock shortly before halftime when Gyan’s shot was tipped over the crossbar by Walid Abdullah.

After the break, stand-in Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah introduced Samuel Inkoom and Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu for Kevin-Prince Boateng and Quincy Owusu-Abeyie.

Moments later, Emmanuel Clottey joined the fray in place of Kwadwo Asamoah.

With 10 minutes to end play, Gyan could have sealed victory but a header to an Inkoom cross was too weak to have beaten Walid for a goal.

The game marked the end of a busy international calender with Ghana having played in two major competitions – African Nations Cup and World Cup and a number of friendly games.

The next fixture for the Black Stars is an African Cup of Nations qualifier against Congo in March.

Starting line up: Richard Kingson, John Paintsil, David Addy, Lee Addy, Jonathan Mensah, Anthony Annan, Quincy Owusu-Abeyie, Kevin-Prince Boateng, Asamoah Gyan, Kwadwo Asamoah, Andre Ayew

Subs: Sammy Adjei, Samuel Inkoom, Harrison Afful, Isaac Vorsah, Karim Alhassan, Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu, Bernard Kumordzi, Emmanuel Clottey

England vs Ghana at Wembley in March???

Talks are underway regarding the prospect of a friendly international between England and Ghana in March 2011.

Fabio Capello’s men are already set to face Wales in a Euro 2012 qualifier at the millenium stadium on 26th March, but have yet to fill the second date of a double-header.

The belief is that Capello is keen to make the most of the rare occasions he gets to work with his squad and wants to get another fixture lined up.

The FA have yet to give any indication as to who they would prefer to play, but it appears Ghana could be possible opponents.

Ghana FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi has confirmed that discussions are underway to put a date…

Ghana Team Not Paid! Where’s the Money?

So it has been almost four months since the end of the FIFA 2010 World Cup in South Africa. Four months since Ghanaians were waxing lyrical on every blog, social networking site and Internet chat room. Four months since Goldcoast bars in Brixton and Norwood were dishing out Jellof, Chicken and Kellewele in Ludicrous quantities. Four months since the Black Stars exciting and groundbreaking World cup campaign captured the hearts of footy fans the world over and yes four months since that penalty miss! 🙁 (I’m actually crying typing this sentence).

Nevertheless pain was replaced by pride and four months down the line Ghanaians and Black stars supporters alike can look back in pride of the performance of the Team in South Africa.
