I'mma download this game and analyze it Pre-WC

some of our plays were plain amateurish. Even when defending cornerkicks, we got sucked into our Penalty box and freed CIV guys to do whatever they wanted 20 yards from our goal. Unbelievable

ok but did you notice how the Ivorians showed their frustration by hacking down any Ghanaian player beyond the center half line with Tiote, Zakora, Eboue as prime culprits?.......Boss the Stars held their own.......we were just unfortunate......Addo, together with his senior colleague, Kingston failed to command the defense......

We are NOT supposed to hold-our-own v CIV

we are supposed to BEAT them like last time

going into this game we had beaten them 5 of 8x at the ANC with 1 other draw... so what are you talking about "hold our own"??

Losing 3-0 in 90mins to a 10-man team?? is what you call "held their own?" ah wo paaaaaa. It was an easy win for CIV

It was a virtual mis-match. Good thing is no one can read anything into this game about GHANA's strength or game from this

well, collectively as a team, you make a point but when making a deeper analysis of the performance, the ''kids'' held their own whilst the seniors, led by the coach let us down...they lost the game for us

Blame Milovan Rajavac for Cote d'Ivoire defeat!

By Samuel K. Obour
Feature Article

Ghana's painful and regrettable loss to the Elephants of Cote d'Ivoire means Ghana hasn't won in seven international matches. Anyone who watched that match wouldn't fail to conclude that Ghana should have done better. The Black Stars could have come away with at least a draw, if the right measures had been put in place by the 'Captain of the Ship'-Milovan Rajavac.

Milo's trusted young players let him down on the night. Opoku Agyemang who replaced Muntari on the left flank for instance, was not too efficient; it has to be said. Muntari was sorely missed and I'm sure Milo himself would have regretted his decision to drop him. Also, Dede Ayew, who played on the right flank, was simply ineffective. He couldn't deliver a single cross throughout the period he was in the match. Inkoom was doing well until he allowed himself to be mesmerized, quite pathetically, by the delightful Kaita, who delivered the sublime cross that Drogba converted for the third goal. Though Inkoom has the phenomenal ability to overlap and place crosses into the box for our strikers, he has yet to prove himself defensively.

Our bane against Cote d'Ivoire was the coach, Milovan. He has proven to be incapable of handling the Black Stars, in my candid opinion. His 23-man selection to Angola 2010 was pathetic. His starting eleven against the Elephants was even more pathetic. The less said about assistant coach, Kwesi Appiah, the better. What is his role in the Black stars? Does he contribute to technical decisions? The difference between Ghana and Cote d'Ivoire on the night was quality and experience; when Kader Kaita was brought on, for instance, it didn't him two minutes to mesmerize Ghana's defence and provide the cross that Drogba converted for the last goal; but Ghana had players who played for almost ninety minutes but couldn't deliver a single cross into the Ivorian eighteen! Now, the question is, was this the best team we could have presented? When Ghana played Cote d'Ivoire in 2008, we had Quincy Owusu-Abeyie who was a torn in the flesh of the Ivorians; he persistently troubled their defence and eventually dribbled four of their defenders to score a magnificent equalizer when we were down 2-1. Why on earth was such a fantastic player, with all his experience and skill, left at home? Nobody can convince me that Opoku Agyemang is a better player than Quincy. In the absence of world class players like Muntari and Laryea Kingston, Quincy's experience and rare skill would have been invaluable! Someone like Opoku Agyemang would have understudied him.

Ghana used to have serious problems with goal scoring until we discovered Agogo. Agogo ended our goal scoring worries with his 0.5 goals per match ratio. He proved his goal scoring ability on numerous occasions. He scored three goals at Ghana 2008, including winning goals against top teams like Nigeria and Cote d'Ivoire. He also scored a couple of goals in the world/nations cup qualifying process. Surprisingly, he was dropped by Milo. Sometimes you just don't understand the coach; Derrick Boateng does very well for Getafe, week in week out, yet he isn't regarded by Milo as good enough for the Stars.

Against Cote d'Ivoire, Agogo would have done better than Amoah in a 4-5-1 formation. Amoah was totally powerless against the very tall, tough and ruthless Ivorian defenders. But Agogo would have matched them boot for boot, strength for strength.

Again, how many times will we tell Milo that, the Black Stars have a traditional pattern of play which is neither 4-5-1 nor 4-2-1-2-1. Our pattern has always been 4-4-2. We never perform when we play any other formation apart from that. Milo has been in charge of the team for about a year now, and should know better. By now, Milo should have transformed the Black Stars into a fearsome side that would perpetually combine brute power, thoroughbred athleticism, and an irrepressible fighting spirit to win all matches that come their way. The Black Stars under Claude Le Roy used to play fluid-free-flowing attacking football just like Brazil; but under Milo, they are playing like 'Bolgatanga Iron Breakers'.

Needless to say, the coach is not justifying the thousands of dollars Ghanaians continually pay him to coach the team. Against Cote d'Ivoire, he got it totally wrong. If Lee Arday and Hans Adu Sarpei aren't good enough to play at left back for the Black Stars, why were they invited to join the team?

Milo could have started with a typical 4-4-2, playing Amoah (9) and Asamoah Gyan (10) in attack, Kodwo Asamoah in Muntari's position (11), Rahim Ayew or Dramani on the right flank (7), Essien in Offensive mid-field (8), and Agyemang Badu in defensive mid-field (6). In defence, Lee Arday, Inkoom, Eric Addo, and Isaac Vorsah would have completed a line-up that would have sent Cote d'Ivoire packing home.

The Black Stars are on the verge of another embarrassing Nations Cup exit; only a win against Burkina Faso will guarantee them a place in the quarter-final. Ghana hasn't won in their last seven matches and it will require extra-ordinary play against Burkina-Faso for us to qualify. I'm a bit apprehensive, considering the fact that we were faced with a similar situation in 2006 and we failed to qualify; we only needed to draw against Zimbabwe, but we were defeated 2-1 and thrown out of the competition. I pray the same thing doesn't happen this time around. It will be too harsh on Ghanaians; we pay the players, coach, and officials of the G.F.A, thousands of dollars to win matches. We motivate, support, and pray for them; and we must get good value for our money and efforts.

With players like Essien, Asamoah Gyan, and Kodwo Asamoah fit to play, we must beat Burkina to qualify; this is non-negotiable. It's been 28 years since we last won the Nations Cup; we must awake from our slumber and go all out to win the cup.

Nice article! We need a fit Agogo and Abeyei period!


BS stopped developing as a team since February 2008 after the ANC in Ghana.

Luckily for us, we had a team good enough, flexible tactically and 1 game outside of the FIFA Top 10 by then so we can always pick up the pieces after all these fake experiments and dead 4231 is over after the ANC

Oh cha, this match is fvcking painful to re-watch. :cry:
See some nice ball we dey play we no dey fit score goals. That's what makes it even worse. For this one we just have to be honest and acknowledge that Cote d'Ivoire were the better team. However, there are some positives we can draw from the game.

*Abedi Pele -> Stephen Appiah -> Kwadwo Asamoah IT IS OFFICIAL! We have a new number 10 and his name is Asamoah. He will play well in that position for at least 5 more years, barring serious injury or sudden loss of discipline.

* Agyeman-Badu is a straight G! Hard tackling, intelligent and not afraid of anyone. Once he has worked on his shooting a little he will become a great asset for the BS

* None of our young players were starstruck by CIV Let's face it, this was a very big game, with big players. I expected the U20 guys to be overawed and crumble under pressure, especially in the early stages, but that didn't happen.

* After the match tomorrow Samuel Inkoom and Rahim Ayew should apologize to the nation for what Kader Keita did to them leading up to the 3rd goal. What kind of life is that?

If Milo should introduce a substitute forward during the match, it must be Ransford Osei. I believe that boy combines better with Adiyiah. The boy should be introduced in atleast the final 15 minutes of the game.
