Former Captain of the Black Stars of Ghana, Stephen Appiah has stated that the ongoing FIFA World Cup at Russia is the best ever in the competition’s history.
According to the former Juventus and Fenerbache midfielder, the 2018 mundial is the best ever since the inception of the tournament in 1930.
“I think so far so good, it’s been very funny, I was telling my friends that this is the best World Cup ever. Football today is not played by names anymore, talent alone is not enough to win games, it’s all about tactical discipline and hard work” Appiah said when he was asked about his impression on the tournament.” Appiah told the Media
“Ten Years ago, Fifteen Years ago, if Argentina were going to play against Iran, you know definitely Argentina were going to win big but look at what countries like Iran and Japan are doing now, so it is not names again, it is about how you will stay focus and play the game”
Appiah was the skipper when Ghana made their World Cup debut in Germany in 2006 and also played a role as the countries reached the last eight in South Africa four years later.
