Groan--World Cup Announcer's Pun

Well, this will only be funny if you speak Spanish, but prior to the Italy-Ghana game today (after the US debacle I was cheering for Ghana just so the US might have a chance) the announcer said, "Ghana tiene ganas de ganar." I won't try to explain why that's such an awful pun except to say that it means 'Ghana would like to win," and puns on two Spanish words that sound like Ghana. It's really the type of pun that makes you groan...but laugh despite yourself.

Or maybe I just needed some reason to laugh after the US game...
