Former Ghana Captain, Stephen Appiah has said 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.
With Brazil, Argentina , Spain and Germany all exiting the tourney aft the early stages, Appiah believes the upsets which nobody predicted clearly affirms his notion that the Russia 2018 is the best ever mundial since its inception 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.”
“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 added .
Appiah led Ghana to its maiden World Cup in Germany in 2006 and also played a role as the countries reached the last eight four years later in South Africa.
