It would have been different in a tournament situation... BS never perform in friendlies bruv
see that is the issue with us.
Champions are always ready to play and win not just in majors but in friendlies as well
Until we enter every game with a winners mindset, we're not up to scratch as contenders yet. There has to be this level of consistency where the Rankings match our real competitiveness level
We are FIFA Top 7 on Grass at WC level, but factor in wack performance in friendlies and our numbers come down, even tho we got a Top 10 team looking to push up even further
To me as at the end of 2010, the only teams better than GHANA were Spain, Holland & Germany. Minus Suarez Handball that was reality in South Africa.
Then the predicted re-match v Holland was going to shape our football forever cos then we get the chance to beat them and make the WC FINAL. That is why i termed it Pre-WC as the destiny game (and people said i was mad cos they see b4 they believe)
Though it didn't happen cos of Gyan blowing the glorious opportunity & Suarez cheating us of certainty, BS still holds promise of hovering around lofty heights this decade
We got to be consistent, whether its a friendly or a competitive game. Doesn't matter. WHo sets out to intentionally lose a winnable game and contend for a Trophy?
We got the ANC, FIFA Confed Cup and FIFA WC Tournaments coming in 1,2,3years time. Matches like this one are preparatory games we shouldn't let slip
