Ghana vs USA by 20legend
We have been waiting for a long time that an African team to get their breakthrough in the WC and Ghana put down an inspiring effort in South Africa, as they lost on a penalty shootout against Uruguay in the quarter final. They are probably the best African team on paper in this tournament with names like Essien, Ayew, Gyan, Boateng and Muntari in addition to the brilliant Asamoah. However, the chances of going through from this Group will be very difficult. With Portugal 4-0 loss against Germany, this game simply has to be won if they should have any chance of proceeding. That might happen, but it will not be without a fight from a surprising USA.
Probable lineup Ghana:
(4-2-3-1): Kwarasey (Strømsgodset), Afful (Esperance Tunis), Asamoah (Juventus), Boye (Rennes), Mensah (Evian), Essien (Milan), Muntari (Milan), Andre Ayew (Marseille), Prince-Boateng (Schalke 04), Jordan Ayew (Sochaux), Gyan (Al Alin)
USA impressed a lot in the qualification, but it is hard to predict their potential as always. Some experts says that it is a weakness that players like Mix (Rosenborg, Norway) is selected into the squad, but as we have seen other and previous players from Tippeligaen have delivered so far (Gamboa and Bolanos for Costa Rica), it is dangerous to make such a decision at this early stage. The morale in this team is huge and their potential in front of goal is also huge with Josy Altidore as their goal getter.
Probable lineup USA:
(4-4-2): Howard (Everton), Johnson (Hoffenheim), Besler (Sporting KC), Cameron (Stoke), Beasley (Puebla), Beckerman ((Real Salt Lake), Bradley (Toronto), Jones (Besiktas), Bedoya (Nantes), Dempsey (Seattle Sounders), Altidore (Sunderland).
This match is also played on the American continent and even if that probably has nothing to say, I can see both teams scoring here as the defense of Ghana is not exactly bulletproof either. Ghana is the favorites, but I do not expect them to keep a clean sheet as few others have done so far in this WC (Only Mexico, France and Germany I think). Both teams to score will be my pick in this match.
