[http://active.typepad.com/.shared/image.html?/photos/uncategorized/ghana.jpg]Nick Mockford is a self- confessed football (soccer) nut and writer for SportsAustralia.com. We spoke to him to get his analysis of the Ghanian national soccer team���an eventual U.S. Soccer opponent.

 

 

 

What style of soccer can we expect from Ghana during the Cup?

 

 

 

Fast, counter-attacking football will be the main course served. Ghana needs to play to its strengths, which is athleticism and pace. They don���t have the quality and depth to match the best footballing nations, so they will obviously look to catch opposing teams off guard with their running ability.

 

 

 

What are some names on the Ghanaian national team that US soccer fans should keep their eye on?

 

 

 

Obviously Essien, Appiah and Muntari are the big three. Essien came to Chelsea from Lyon, both giants on the European club scene, while Appiah���s resume is nothing to be sniffed at either, having played at Parma and Juventus before heading to his current location at Fenerbahce in Turkey.
