Gyan Scores Penalty After Serbian Handball

Serbia had stars like Milos Krasic, Branislav Ivanovic, Nemanja Vidic, Nenad Milijas and Dejan Stankovic. They have the tallest striker of the World Cup, Nikola Zigic. Ghana lined up with a massively powerful eleven players. Kevin-Prince Boateng, John Mensah and Gyan makes up a physically strong Ghanaian side, capable of competing against Serbia.

In the end, a rush of blood settled the tie. The first penalty awarded in the this summer's World Cup was scored by Gyan. You can see the goal animation here.

The win sparked wild scenes of celebration both in the stadium and in Accra. Ecstatic fans took to the streets of Accra on Sunday after Ghana made history by becoming the first African team to win a game in the first World Cup to take place on the continent. African media reported brass bands and taxi drivers blowing their horns noisily through the Ghanaian capital, while motorcyclists risked life and limb by driving around while waving the country's colourful flag. In one scene of jubilation, wedding guests abandoned a wedding ceremony to take part in the street celebrations, according to reports.

First round matches have looked very tight so far in South Africa. Even with an unpredictably ball, the goals have not been flowing. So far, the Confederations Cup last year would seem better entertainment than the seven games I have seen since Friday 11th June.
