    The last round of Group A actually turned out to be quite dramatic after all. Many talked about it as though it was all over even before it began. All Mexico and Uruguay had to do was share the points and they would both go through. But with the potential opponent of Argentina coming second in the group, this game was not going to be friendly by any means, and both teams went for victory.

    The Black Stars Draw and the Heartbreaking Exit of the Indomitable Lions

    Let's begin with our boys from Ghana. They met an avenge-hungry Australia who, after their 0-4 dismal performance against Germany, stepped out on the pitch ready to show everyone that if were only given a fair chance, they'd prove to the world they belong on this stage. And it started well for the Socceroos as they did what they have never done before in a World Cup and scored the first goal. But Ghana were given a gratis opportunity when Australia, for the second game in a row, had a man sent off and Ghana scored the penalty kick for the second game in a row. All the Black Stars had to do now was to win - the stage was set!

    A perfect penalty kick and boom. The first goal from a forward in this World Cup was made. A quite ecstatic game-hero, Asamoah Gyan, tried to sum it up after the game. "It's not just for Ghana, this victory was for Africa, I hope whole Africa is behind us". Pretty sure they are, Gyan.

    On Serbia's Preparations:

    We didn't have a great result against New Zealand, it was very disappointing and we have thought a lot about the mistakes we made, which is obviously very important to be able to improve our performances. We have been working hard to pick up our fitness, and eliminate these mistakes so we can achieve some good form in the tournament. It's much better for us to lose in the friendlies than in the World Cup!

    For those in the know, there's no question that Asamoah Gyan is going to be one of the big names to emerge from the World Cup in South Africa. Earlier this year, the striker fired the Black Stars to the African Cup of Nations final and now he intends to blow apart the defences of Serbia, Germany and Australia in Group E. Laid back as ever when we catch up with him at the Puma Unity Experience in Paris. Gyan talks to PUMAFootball about the great expectations of him, dreams of moving to a big club.

    The mood was wonderful behind the stadium, as the players from Ivory Coast, Ghana and Cameroon got together before the big Unity Game.

    They might be rivals in two weeks,  but none of that could be seen when they got together and goofed around like kids.

    After spending some time with the Ghanaian team two things become obvious.

    But before we announce the results of this grueling battle, a test of skills and mind, it's important to remember that winning isn't everything.
