Ghana qualify for 2010 World Cup

Lifted from the BBC Sport site…

Ghana have qualified for their second successive World Cup after a 2-0 victory over Sudan in Accra.

The Black Stars reached the 2006 tournament in Germany under Ratomir Dujkovic and another Serb coach, Milovan Rajevac has repeated the feat.

Ghana knew World Cup qualification was in their hands when Benin scored an equaliser against Mali just a few minutes before the kick-off in Accra.

Sulley Muntari’s strike early in the first half put the hosts in the driving seat.

Michael Essien made sure of the three points and World Cup qualification when he scored just a few minutes after half-time.

Ghana remain unbeaten in Group D.

Ghanaians love their football, and this world cup qualification follows their success in the Germany 2006 World Cup when they progressed through the first round group stages but were knocked out in the second round by Brazil.

Let's hope for some Divine intervention - on this occasion it was not forthcoming
