It's Guinea, they 'won' the draw lottery

Their first QF appearance since 2008

There will be a great uproar when the result of a draw will not be received in XT by accusations of cheating. :rollani:

On a healthier note, here's how the players of both squads were waiting for the result of the draw earlier this afternoon...

The drawing of lots is surely an unsatisfactory way of deciding who goes through? It's literally a lottery - couldn't they just play another game? Let the subs for the original game play 5-a-side behind closed doors to determine who goes through or something? Anything? Oh well....whatever

Feel cheated as in being knocked out without being beaten at football, not suggesting they were cheated or anything.

I like that photo.

Ghana starts with a bang. Andre Ayew's backheel assisting Atsu to open the score only after 4'.

Avram Grant, champion of Africa :hopeful:


Lex Immers - Pace & power. Holland's #1 box to box player

Feyenoord forum - the place to talk about this phenomenon

Ronald Koeman "Oranje kan Immers goed gebruiken"

Fred Rutten "Feyenoord heeft Immers nodig"

Van Marwijk over Lex Immers: 'Stille kracht van Feyenoord'

John de Wolf “Dat is nou precies de aanjager, het ’etterbakkie’ in het veld dat Feyenoord in dit soort wedstrijden nodig heeft"

One minute before the break Ghana makes it 2-0 through Kwesi Appiah after intercepting a silly back pass from a Guinean defender.

very possible, the winners of both today's semis should be in the finals. Though Ghana looked very poor in the group stage today has been comfortable

Bad losers attitude by Guinea with their keeper needlessly wacking Gyan and being sent off very close to the end.

Ghana strolled in this game and looked much better than during the Group Stage.
