On July 2, 2010 Ghana’s senior football team, the black stars had the best chance ever in their footballing history to progress to the semi-finals stages of the Fifa World cup, but it never happened.

It’s been ten years since the country lost to Uruguay during that World Cup in South Africa.

In that match Ghana scored first through a Sulley Muntari opener but Diego Forlan’s fine second-half free-kick levelled the scores.

The game went into extra-time and then Luiz Suarez handled the ball in the goal post.

He was sent off and Ghana was awarded a penalty kick but the taker, Asamoah Gyan missed it.

The man who missed that penalty said to his critics that they “celebrate failure more than achievements”

The Black Stars were hoping to reach the semifinals of the tournament for the time in their history.

It would have been the first as well for the continent of Africa but it never happened.
