Osei Kuffour: I was Ghana's best player against Italy at 2006 World Cup

Former Bayern Munich Samuel Osei Kuffour says he was Ghana’s best player against Italy during Black Stars opening game during 2006 World Cup despite his costly mistake.
Kuffour played an instrumental role in the West African country's maiden qualification to the FIFA World Cup in Germany.
Despite his stupendous performance for the team, he was criticised by many Ghanaians for his blunder that led to the Italians’ second goal.
Kuffour was dropped after a costly mistake for the next three games as Ghana bowed out in the round-of-16 against Brazil after his mistake in that first match led to a 0–2 loss to the Italians.
The former AS Roma and Asante Kotoko defender says he accepts his mistake but cautioned that what happened to him could have happened to any player.
“It was amazing to play in the 2006 World Cup,” Kuffour told GTV in an interview.
“We were determined to make history and playing the Round of 16 for me was a history.
