World Cup 2014: Winners and Losers

first_imgThe world’s best soccer festival has traveled fives at several centers in Brazil, with smashing but surprising results.At the time of writing, two of Africa’s representatives, Nigeria and neighbor Ghana were scheduled to honor their engagements against Iran and United States respectively late last night.All Africans’ expectation is the expectation the two nations would follow the example of Cote d’Ivoire, who punished Japan 2-1 in their first group match.Against Iran, one of the giants in Asia, there were speculations last night that the Super Eagles would depend on Peter Odemwingie to hold the trump card for the Eagles’ victory.How far that can be ascertained is known by now. For the Black Stars of Ghana, who held some form of psychological victory over the Americans, having beaten them twice in World Cup clashes, Coach Jurgen Klinsman would need more to support his herculean wish against the Black Stars.For the Americans, victory this time would not only erase some of that past pain but also provide a solid base for Klinsmann in his attempt to overcome favorites Germany.Ghana’s John Mensah, who played in the 2010 win over Monday’s opponents as a late call-up, acknowledged the previous games between the two sides will add an extra edge in yesterday’s game in Natal.”It’s going to be like a revenge [match] for the United States, because we beat the United States in 2006 and we beat them in 2010,” Mensah told FIFA.com.”Once again we’re playing them in the first game. For the first game of the competition, everybody is focused and nervous, so it’s going to make the game very, very interesting.”Everybody will be expecting something from Ghana and from the United States as well.”It’s a difficult game, but we’ll try as much as possible to win.”USA coach Klinsmann has courted debate with his decision to omit the country’s record goals-corer Landon Donovan from the squad.“Donovan is a fans’ favorite and has been hired to commentate on his former’s team-mates on US television, providing a potentially distracting sub-plot, but full-back Fabian Johnson is fully behind the boss,” according to ESPN.Results have been shattering, especially after Croatia gave favorites, Brazil a scare and the Dutch destroyed the invincibility of Spain to convince the Spanish about the tragedy they are faced in the 2014 World Cup.Another shocking result was the demolishing of Ronaldo’s Portugal 4-0 in their Group G match yesterday.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
