In the immediate aftermath of Ghana’s dramatic qualification to the 2022 World Cup, a social media user tweeted “Ghana has beaten Nigeria but the pain is being felt in South Africa’.
That tweet was not untrue except that in this case the pain is also going to be felt in Nigeria as well.
South Africa have been mentioned in this episode and rightly so because for some reasons they are yet to overcome the pain inflicted on them by the Black Stars in October last year at the Cape Coast Stadium.
They have yet recovered from that defeat which came via an Andre Ayew penalty and have on various social media platforms been wishing doom for the Black Stars.
It is as result of this that Ghana’s qualification to the World Cup has generated anger and sorrow in the country.
On social media, South Africans are hurt and lamenting the qualification of Ghana to the World Cup as they believe they should have been there ahead of Ghana.
