Ghana, despite losing to Germany qualified for the last 16 thanks to their early win against Serbia. With Cameroon, Algeria, Nigeria and South Africa having already been knocked out, and given the Ivory Coast will need a lot of help to edge out Portugal then it looks like the Black Stars will be the home continents only representatives in the latter stages.
The draw has been quite kind to them pairing them with the USA a winnable game and should they come through that then the winner of Uruguay – South Korea awaits. Although none of these teams will be push overs this is the best chance ever for an African team to reach the Semi Finals.
