Oh Ghana: Supply Chain Progress denied by the hand of Suarez

Oh Ghana, Ghana! wherefore art thou Ghana?

Deny thy goal by penalty in the last minute of extra time and refuse thy destiny;

Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn to do better in the shoot out,

And we’ll no longer be denied an African team in the semi-finals.

.... and so a continent mourned in noble defeat.

.... And to address my own earlier question (not answer it, please note):

“What has the World Cup done for them?”

It has given a continent hope, albeit briefly & albeit on a football field in Johannesburg.

It may not be Romeo & Juliet, but there was something of a Shakespearean tragedy about this football match.
