I have been sitting by my laptop for four hours, doing next to nothing and thinking about how to start this. First, I have never, in all the years of living in this country seen a Saturday when the nation has been so... QUIET. That silence, I believe, is deafening. But I will try...
The name Ghana means Warrior King and I am sure yesterday, our boys were exactly that: Warrior Kings.
Yes, we had the chance to make heady history and fluffed it. But when people let out all the anger, all the hurt and all the emotion, they would realise one thing:
Ghana has regained its place as the absolute master of African football.
Forget that Egypt have won six African Nations Cup titles. After all we have won four. (update: it's seven titles)
Nigeria? Senegal? Cameroon? Ivory Coast?
They are big, but Ghana has done something it is noted for doing in other spheres of life: we have united the continent in ways that you cannot imagine.
