As many of you would know by now, Ghana has just confirmed its qualification to the World Cup in Brazil next year. It was a foregone conclusion after the Black Stars spelt Egypt and walloped the Pharoahs in Kumasi Agoropramaso last month. Congrats to the Black Stars and big ups to all the supporters of the Ghana national football team. I got to watch most of the second half and saw our goal. I missed a lot of tweets too. So for our collective benefit, here are some tweets you may have missed as you were following the Ghana game versus Egypt and the subsequent celebrations. And my comments :-)

For all you worriers...Ghana is still 4 goals up wai. #blackstars. #Ghana.I don't enjoy how fickle our support for the Black Stars gets. Too many doomsday sayers in Ghana. It's great we overcome this many-a-time. +M.anifest had to manifest this confidence for many fans today.

When Egypt scores another goal, the black stars must celebrate with them to waste timeFrom the lady who brought you #olelefacts lol. Great idea by +Achere Buxton hehe.

ok so today no #OleleFacts ?I shock sef. Seems the subject is done and dusted. Now, we'd see if Richard Olele Kingson goes to the World Cup too as part of the Black Stars squad.

I hear only half of the Ghana Supporters' Union at the Cairo stadium are cheering. Apparently half of them are soldiers in plain clothes lolAnother funny friend of mine, +Lexis Bill. But on the real though, Ghanaians worried o! I feared for good security for my buddy +Gary Al-Smith but +Rana Kortam assured me not to worry. :-)

Ghana football drama: of course Asamoah Gyan passes to Kevin Prince Boateng to score. Ghana 1- 2 Egypt. Praying for safe travels back o. ...More worrying. Especially with the goal lol. +Emmanuel A. Gamor, all clear. Rana, congrats to Egypt on the win. But this is a small footnote in the main story which is captured by the following tweets.

Congratulations to the Black Stars for qualifying for the 2014 World Cup, and to all Ghanaians for rallying behind the team. #Brazil2014I just like this tweet. If it was Mahama, he'd be talking about NDC people. Kudos to +Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo! If you think I am an NPP supporter, your face is in a hurry!

Kwesi Appiah qualifies Ghana as the 1st local Coach to do so. @ASAMOAH_GYAN does same as the Youngest Captain ever to do it with GHANA. #VimKwasi Appiah did the job. Proud of my namesake. First local coach to qualify Ghana, confirmed by +AngeloBenjy Agyei-Boateng. We can also do this. We should never forget that.

Here we go, #Ghana. The black stars clinch for another tourney appearance. #StartBelieving pic.twitter.com/R9KojgCORBI really like this tweet because of the #StartBelieving message. Black Stars supporters should really believe.

A massive well done to our Captain @ASAMOAH_GYAN and all the boys. Cc:@Asabob20 #blackstars #GhanaDefinitely. Osee Asamoah Gyan! Let's join +Adwoa Agyemang and big up the whole team.

Good question. RT @CyrusdeVyrus: On wednesday will the discussion be Black Stars, Kevin B or the BUDGET? LolYour choice? I say we should be discussing the Black Stars. They make us proud! I want to capture the end of this blog post with one tweet.
