Celebs go home disappointed as Africa’s last hope advances with extra-time goal
RUSTENBURG — Decked out in a blue USA jacket, former president Bill Clinton was in the house, rubbing elbows with Rolling Stones dinosaur Mick Jagger.
Not far away, Kobe Bryant sat in a VIP section, offering his support for Landon Donovan and the boys. So, too, were well-known journalists Wolf Blitzer and Katie Couric, on hand to hopefully enjoy what might be an historic night for U.S. soccer.
Indeed, it was a virtual who’s who of the celebrity world that descended on this South African mining town some two hours north west of Johannesburg Saturday to see if the United States could get past Ghana into the quarterfinals of World Cup 2010. Nice gesture, people. But all the ex-presidents, gold record recipients and NBA champions in the world weren’t about to overcome the will and determination of an entire continent on this night.
With all of Africa cheering on Ghana, its lone remaining participant in South Africa 2010, striker Asamoah Gyan made it a night to remember with a spectacular goal in the 93rd minute that gave Ghana a 2-1 victory in extra time, ending the U.S. World Cup dreams in the process.
