Ghana are rationing electricity so people can watch the World Cup match v America
Ghana are taking extreme measures to make sure their countrymen can can watch the World Cup match v America on Monday night.

To ensure that World Cup viewing won’t be interrupted, Ghana is purchasing 50 megawatts of electricity from its neighbor, Ivory Coast.
Power plants will also be running at maximum capacity, and Volta Aluminum, the nation’s largest smelter and a large drain on electricity, will slow production during the match.
