    And we get our first African victory of the cup. Ghana, the home of Prince Nana, stunned the Serbs in today's game which aired at approximately 9:30 AM Eastern Time this morning.

    The game was back and forth, and really was about as exciting as you could ask for from a soccer match.

    I love how they call their player of the game the "man of the match" that just sounds so stupid.

    I have a feeling the World Cup will get better once we get out of these preliminary rounds, but right now the Cup is a bit of a disappointment thus far.moreless

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Serbia Coach Radomir Antic: Of course this is a big blow for us, it's bad to start the World Cup with a defeat. We were nervous from the start and made a lot of mistakes. We have two more games, so we must now be positive and regain our energy. We must put this behind us and look forward to playing Germany and Australia.

    • Ghana Forward and Man of the Match Asamoah Gyan: This is all I have worked for, and to be man of the match, it is fantastic. I was just lucky to score the winning goal. Every one of us wanted to win. We showed a lot of experience and we were better today. I have to say thank you to the crowd. Every African is behind us. I salute all of them; we won this match for you.

    • (on the challenge of playing against the national team of his homeland)
      Ghana Coach Milovan Rajevac: Of course for me personally in my job this is a great victory but I'm sorry for the Serbian team. I know many of their players and I could see how saddened they were but I tried to concentrate on my job and perform my duties in a professional manner. Maybe we got lucky, they're a very good team and it's difficult to play against them. I hope they get six points in their next two matches.
