Tomorrow Ghana will try to the impossible: become the first African nation to go to the semi-finals of the World Cup.  Two African countries came close, but failed: Cameroon in 1990 (in a thrilling match with England determined by dodgy refereeing) and Senegal in 2002 (against Turkey). But Ghana seems to the real thing. But to do that Ghana has  to overcome Uruguay, a team who play with a goalkeeper, 8 defenders and two world class strikers.

A good way to get fired up for this match is with the World Cup hit “Football Jama” by Ghanaians Richy Pitch, Sway and M3NSA from London and Accra and in-between.

Trumpets and percussion played by some devoted Black Star fans round out the mix. Bring on Uruguay.
