The last time when Ghana team played the one from Uruguay, South Americans rejoiced, and all Africans could do was to watch helpessly as Ghana allowed a victory to be wrestled from their grasp. It has been quite a while since that fateful July evening in Johannesburg, and things have changed dramatically for the side that would eventually lose to Germany in the third-place game by a lone goal.
While the South American champions still boast of the mercurial and cunning Suarez, the rest of the team has lost its fizzle and is far removed from that sound side that impressed us all at the World cup.
They currently stand on equal footing with the Africa champion, but only because Nigeria has not found her groove in the last three games she has played.
Their bid to win through to Brazil next year is in considerable jeopardy, as they lie in the inglorious sixth place in the South American qualifier. So they simply can't throw caution to the wind and must guard against injury.
The reminder to get revenge for the entire Africa came even from the Ghanaian Asamoah Gyan, who sent the Eagles a special message urging them on to victory. It simply read "do it for Africa".
Go Super Eagles! Do it for Africa!
