Former Black stars captain, Stephen Appiah, has stated that the ongoing World cup in Russia is the best he has ever seen.

The world cup has been favoring the underdogs instead of the big giants. Powerhouses like Germany, Spain, and Brazil have all been eliminated from the competition.

Stephen Appiah was instrumental in the black stars first world cup qualification in 2006 In Germany.

“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 told the media.

“Ten or 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 about fame anymore, it is about how you will stay focused and play the game,” he added.
