Saturday brings a pivotal Group D clash between two teams enduring vastly different fortunes as Ghana face Australia in Rustenburg. Following an impressive 1-0 win against Serbia, the Black Stars are aiming to become just the second African nation after Nigeria to qualify for the knockout stage of the FIFA World Cup™ a second time. Australia conversely need to recover physically and mentally after the well-documented masterclass they received in a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Germany in their group opener. The match will be a test of youth against experience with the youngest squad at South Africa 2010, Ghana, facing the second-oldest in the Socceroos.
qualifies like in 2006 and moves to the knockout stage. They play a very fluid passing football but they do lack discipline sometimes.
But I hope Australia win just to make competition on this group even more interesting.
