Ghana have the youngest squad in the World cup. The Defence is weak and inexperienced. Against Portugal and Germany there will be goals and I expect them to fall at the first hurdle in the group and that is purely because of the weak inexperienced defence. However I actually think they are very good in midfield and not bad up front. Kevin-Prince Boatang, Sulley Muntari and Michael Essien are all well known for playing both England and Italy.

The guy im most looking forward to watching is Kwadwo Asamoah. The Juventus Midfield player can play central or wide left and I think this is hi world cup to show off what he can do. I also like Emmanuel Agymang-Babu who plays for Udinese. I saw him play a few times this year and I really like him as a footballer. Loads of energy. They have the Ayew brothers Jordan and Andre who play in France for Marseille.  If your a Fifa computer game player you may know Abedi Pele who is always in the Fifa legends squads well his real surname is Ayew and his is the father of both Jordan and Andre.

You may remember Asamoah Gyan for nothing more than his Penalty 4 years ago that crashed off the crossbar and effectively put Uruguay through after Suarez handballed it on the line.  Well you may be surprised to find out that he is still only 28 years old and is about to compete in his 3rd world cup. Ghana have got out of the group on the last to occasions knocking out USA both times (either in the group or in the 2nd round) they also play Germany again after being in the same group as them 4 years ago and joining them out of the group in the knockout stages and facing the USA who they beat. No African team has got closer to the semi finals than Ghana but don’t expect that to change this world cup.

The Group is tough. I expect Portugal and Germany to go through. Defensively they are just better than the USA and Ghana. Im not saying that Ghana or the USA cannot cause a shock and go through but I just don’t think they will. But there is a shock every year so maybe this year it will be Germany or Portugal going out group stage.

Star man: Kevin Prince Boatang
One to watch: Kwadwo Asamoah
Prediction: Group Stage
