    Ghana (show how much caps) - possible line up:
    GK: Lawrence Ati-Zigi (11 caps)
    RB: Tariq Lamptey (2 caps)
    DF: Mohammed Salisu (3 caps)
    DF: Daniel Amartey (46 caps)
    LB: Gideon Mensah (12 caps)
    MF: Thomas Partey (40 caps)
    MF: Mohamed Kudus (18 caps) or Salis Abdul Samed (1 cap)
    AM: Andre Ayew (110 caps)
    LW: Inaki Williams (3 caps)
    RW: Kamaldeen Sulemana (13 caps)
    CF: Daniel Afriyie (7 caps)

    Just to show how new and untested this team is. Massive upgrades in Lamptey, Salisu, Kudus, Williams or Samed. Not AFCON team.

    I would take Thomas Partey over every DM or CM in Portugal though.

    CAF shut out so far.
    Will Ghana be able to find a goal?

    Portugal are a big team at this World Cup. So I'll say no.

    Thanks mate,

    I meant we are better than ourselves back in 2014. I bet you'd take Partey over Miguel Veloso, too!

    A younger Ronaldo wouldve scored there.

    Ghana defence split open way too easily

    That wasn't really a foul. Bad call.

    Why is Europe a different continent from Asia? Why is Russia in UEFA? :)
    My explanation:
    Some dudes drew an imaginary line based on some geography or cultural differences (a mountain range for Russia) ;)

    In the end it's all imaginary

    Here is the thing

    I would say fair enough but if the defender fouled Ronaldo the same way that is not a PK

    So the ref hates Portugal. Soft foul and it was a PK at Joao Felix

    Portugal doing nothing, too slow in their passing, all sideways. Asking for trouble. Ghana incredibly disciplined in their defensive shape
