Text size Aa Aa

At the World Cup the underdogs can often bark as well bite.

Four years ago in South Africa Ghana reached the quarter finals to the surprise of many, but this time around in Brazil their chances of making it past the group stages look slim after being tied with Germany, Portugal and the United States.

Despite the difficulties Ghana combine the experience of Michael Essien and Asamoah Gyan with the talent of former Liverpool player Emmanuel Badu and Chelsea winger Christian Atsu, known as the “African Messi”.

Their first match takes place on June 16 against the United States in Natal.
