On Beating the United States in Soccer

GHANA captain John Mensah says religious faith has been key to his side’s brilliant performances at the 2010 World Cup. . . .

. . . .“We just pray to God before we go out,” Mensah told the German Press Agency DPA.

“We are Christians and we all know how important God is.

“We all respect God and we pray every time, both before and after the game.”

The joy those prayer session bring is obvious to anybody who attends their training sessions.

“We Black Stars are used to singing,” Mensah said.

“After training we sing together. Not always, but definitely on the day before the game.

“We praise God, what he has done for us.
