the ghana team advances to the quarterfinals of the world cup for the first time in its history. it is the last team from africa that is still in the championships and perhaps this is why they played football with a passion while the u.s.a. team played with the look of a deer caught in the headlight. that the u.s. team got into the second round was due more to pluck and luck than skill. the game, in the united states is played by nancy boys. it is perceived as a game for affluent kids whose mothers (soccer moms) drive them to practice in theri bmw suvs. while in south america it is more for kids from the shanty towns. and in the uk it is played by tough guys who like to fight.
