The Black Satellites’ run to the U-20 World Cup title in 2009 was far from straightforward.
A topsy-turvy tournament saw the team have to come from behind, cope with 10 men and survive a penalty-shootout.
There were lots of cameras to capture the scenes in each of the games and we’ve put a few of them together in this piece.
Ghana 2-1 Uzbekistan
Ghana’s first group game against Uzbekistan was a tight one, that the Satellites edged in the end.
They went behind to Karimov’s early second-half strike but goals from Ransford Osei and Dominic Adiyiah in the last 30 minutes gave them a winning start.
Ghana 4-0 England
An emphatic win for the Satellites in their second game with Adiyiah (2), Andre Ayew and Ransford Osei getting on the scoresheet.
Uruguay 2-2 Ghana

ROUND OF 16
