BlackStars Osee Yee #TurnDownForWhat?!

I'm so psyched for Ghana's national football team's performance and success at this year's Fifa World Cup in Brazil! My VIM dey so much so that I have neglected to acknowledge or event pay attention to some of the facts:
  • The Blackstars starting goalkeeper, Fatau Dauda is a suspect when his feet aren't grounded.
  • No African country, including Ghana has gone to the semi's in the World Cup competition before, ever.
  • Though we have returning strikers, midfielders and players; most (except 1 player) who play in international competition, we do not have a break out top 10 world class play maker/scorer: Messi, Christian Ronaldo, Neymar, Bale to name a few. Asamoah Gyan, Kevin Prince Boateng notwithstanding. 
  • Team chemistry is key to progressing during the World Cup and the friendlies I have seen thus far (yes they are Coach Appiah's experiment's on individual performance) has lacked overall display of strong team chemistry.

Nevertheless I'm so excited about the Blackstars that I'm taking pictures of Ghana Flags with my phone at work, spending Youtube time checking out the latest highlights of teams we're playing Portugal Germany and USA in the Group of Death. Pah, victory is sweetest with a formidable foe abi?

Ghana Osee Yee!

At work, I take pictures of flags/any patriotic paraphernalia to counteract my colleague +Ryan Michael's consistent prayers for America's victory during our first match in the competition. Tweeaa! 

I resorted to posting this fantastic sketch I found on Instagram of Michael Essien, Asamoah Gyan and Kevin Prince Boateng celebrating victoriously (you see my foreshadowing tings) on all my social media accounts for good measure. After scoring 4-0 to an unorganized South Korea, we're heading to Brazil with a winning attitude; turn down for what?! #MostVim
