There’s something about Portugal winning the World Cup on former colonial territory (Brazil) that actually seems quite promising this summer.
Whether it’s their frustration at having missed out on Euro 2012 and the World Cup 2010, or Cristiano Ronaldo’s own pressure (he is a noted perfectionist) towards winning the trophy, Portugal are clearly out to make amends – warrior style – and they proved it in their 5-1 whipping of Cameron last night. In a historical sense, it would be quite epic if they squared off against Brazil in the final at the Maracana!
Ronaldo, who is now Portugal’s all-time leading goalscorer, also got onto the scoresheet last night along with Meireles, Coentrao and Edinho.
Ghana star Kevin-Prince Boateng has declared that Ghana are not just out to make numbers at this year’s World Cup. Instead, he is aiming to progress into the medal zone for the first time in African history.
The 27-year-old was instrumental in Ghana’s quarter-final feat at the last World Cup finals in South Africa and he is confident they can go far. Boateng has ten caps with two goals for the Black Stars, and was among the ten players nominated for African Footballer of the Year in 2010 and 2011.
A portal, where you can post free ads in Ghana, also believes that the German-born player will create history at the second appearance for the World Cup.
“We are not going to the World Cup to make up the numbers. We are looking forward to making history and upsetting the record books when we arrive in Brazil.”
