    What a lol.

    Where did you get in the World Cup?
    And where did Ghana get?

    We would've been in the semi's had it not been for a handball off the line by Luis Suarez.

    Try again.

    You obviously dont get the importance of friendlys they are build up to qualifiers while this one is after a qualifier no point. So what you have never won a world cup and o my second nation Germany got 3rd thank you very much.

    Ghana should win this. They're quality and play well as a team. England don't play like a team. They fared far better against Germany in the World Cup than England did; it took a great goal from Ozil to win it, whereas Germany totally battered our defence.

    I have to agree it's fairly pointless having the game after the qualifier, I guess it gives Capello the chance to try a few new things out but still, an extra fixture at this stage of the season is hardly what the players will need.

    Indeed, England were lucky not to be 5-0 down at half-time in that match!

    Mainly because goalkeeper is the only position where a good player doesn't need to be a team-player to perform well.

    I don't even think Ghana was a country when England won the World Cup, so that's hardly a valid argument.

    International football is not played nearly as much as club football, so international teams have to have some matches to practice and try out new tactics etc. These are practice matches for matches that actually matter, like qualifiers etc.

    I don't see us losing this tbh, Ghana haven't won a game outside Africa for 5 years and it won't be the same bunch who played in the WC for us, I reckon Capello will use it to try out more of the new generation and they'll all be trying to prove themselves, so we should come out on top.

    International teams don't get much chance to play together between tournaments, qualifying matches are also relatively few and far between. Friendlies are a chance to help the manager try out different players/formations/tactics without the result really mattering and they're also good way for the players to get used to playing with each other.

    I understand that,
    but to call it the least important match in England's history is a clear insult on Ghana's credentials

    which is why I lol'd.

    I think England might win, but it wont be easy - but the home advantage might help England. But there will be a strong and loud African following (i'll be there)
    Ghana's players are spread out over some of the top clubs all over Europe - nevermind the ones who qualify to play for Ghana but opted not to (Welbeck, Ballotelli, Boateng most notably) and most of our players are young and willing to run for the entire game, very talented considering all factors considered.

    Its just not a lead up to anything and the rivalry between Ghana and England is null. It may be big for English people of Ghanian descent but for every1 else it pretty much means nothing in contrast to wales England match today.

    if that goal had been allowed england would have been more composed at half time. They would have won no problem
