A FORMER Hinchingbrooke School student has been making the most of the World Cup by reporting from Africa for an Austrian national newspaper.
Charlotte Rose, 19, wrote a heart warming report on Ghana's victory against Czech Republic on June 17.
Charlotte is completing a journalism work placement in Kumasi, Ghana, and wrote a first hand account on Ghana's reaction to the result.
She wrote: "Taking in the crowded Eclipse Bar in Kumasi, the atmosphere was nothing less than frenzied as referee Horacio Elizondo blew the final whistle on Ghana's first round match against the Czech Republic. Ghanaians simultaneously erupted onto the streets outside, in scenes of wild jubilation.

"The underdogs at the start of the match, Ghana's black stars held millions of fans at the stadium in Cologne and around the world enraptured, as they outclassed the team ranked second in the world to pull off a stunning 2-0 victory."
The report adds: "All around us, delighted throngs of fans clapping, hooting and whistle blowing brought the city's roads to a standstill, the noise eclipsed only by the banging of improvised drums and music blasting at full volume.
