Ghana feted on becoming only the third African team to reach World Cup quarter finals.

    Ghana has become only the third African football team in history to have reached the quarter finals of the World Cup, which is being hosted by South Africa this year.

    Although the team was knocked out of the tournament by Uruguay, it has earned respect from football fans across the world for making it so far.
