Step Into the Penalty Box

On the latest episode of VOA’s Penalty BOX, host Petter Clottey and his guests discuss Group G – considered by many to be the World Cup’s “Group of Death.” Group G is made up of second-ranked Germany, third-ranked Portugal, Ghana and the United States.

One of Peter’s guests, Sonny Young, points out on his blog that Ghana is coached by the first indigenous coach to take the team to the World Cup: Kwesi Appiah.  Appiah will no doubt look to continue Ghana’s success against the U.S. at World Cup.  Ghana eliminated the U.S. team in 2006 and 2010.
