I not so sure I wouldn’t rather play Germany next because ….

Playing in a stadium chock full of the other team’s rabid supporters can really shake up a team. Having watched 20 years worth of qualifiers … it is really hard to win a game when the intense feelings and sounds ooze negativity onto the field toward you … it is really hard to win a game against a team that is so carried away by the positive telepathy of the crowd that their feet don’t touch the ground and they believe they are unbeatable. … see Australia’s last game

Thus Ghana will be, as the last African team standing. African nations may have their differences but in the end … it is one Africa against the world … and that makes the game tougher than Germany.
