Soccer madness in a soccer-mad country

You'll be hard-pressed to find a pub or bar in Accra on a Wednesday night that is not showing a match of the English Premier Football League or any other regional match.
This is what we do here. We are keen followers of soccer, and true to form have been caught up in the fever of the 2010 World Cup; not only because it is for the first time ever being played on the Continent, but because Ghana's national team - The Black Stars have made it into the next round, a step away from the quarter-finals.
