Ghana: Africa’s World Cup ‘heroes’

Ghana is the third African football team to have ever reached the quarterfinals of the World Cup, which is being hosted by South Africa this year.

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

Al Jazeera’s Louise Potter reports from Johannesburg, South Africa on celebrations for a team many have called “Africa’s heroes”.
