Ghana's win is celebrated by millions in Africa

Share |

Ghana shocked the World Cup after getting the first surprising result. They beat Czech Republic in a very steady way and showing a great football.

In fact, it was their first-ever victory at soccer's World Cup and celebrations from Cologne's historic squares to Accra's markets and may inspire other African squads still to get three points at the tournament.

"I'm proud and this vistory is for the team, for Ghana and the people of Africa," Michael Essien told reporters at the German city.

Africa's five representatives had previously lost five and drawn two of their encounters at the four-yearly showpiece. The win sparked celebrations in the Ghanaian capital similar to the scenes that marked the country's independence from the U.K. in 1957.
