Black stars why oh why?

In every sport one team will come out victorious. The triumphed team needs to be congratulated for their determination, courage and effort.

However, if most Soccer pundits believed the losing team should have won the game then, questions must be ask of the losing coach?

Despite that, Ghanaians have their coach for the Black Stars, Ghanaians knew that the 2014 World cup opening match against U.S.A. was do and die affair.

We all know our players who can perform at this crucial stage. Especially, by including, Michael Essien and Kevin Prince Boateng in the starting line up.

However, the coach being a former Black Starts captain refused to include the two experienced players in the starting line up and started with inexperience players.

I am little confused and like every other Ghanaian would like to know, was there any confusion between him, and the players before the match? Or was Akwasi Appiah's palms greased? Because he is not making enough money as the other international managers?

If not, Ghanaians need explicit and convincing explanation (report) from the coach and the G.F.A why we lost this decisive U.S.A opening 2014 World cup game, because Ghanaians hearts are broken and disappointed?

Thank you all and hope we can still qualify for the next round.
