Ghana vs USA by iSpree
Ghana and USA with Portugal and Germany in the Group. This seems to be the same situation as Nigeria vs. Iran. Both are the underdogs in this group, but i think one of this two teams can surprise and make it to the next round.
Ghana qualified 3 times in a row now for the World Cup. They scored the most goals in the qualfication and shot down egypt with 7:3 total goals in the playoffs. Preperation was also good with 0:1 vs Portugal and 4:0 vs South Korea.
Probable line-up: Kwarasey – Opare, Mensah, Boye, Inkoom – Essien, Boateng, Asamoah – J.Ayew, A.Gyan, A.Ayew
10 times in a row for them to qualify for the WC and with Jürgen Klinsmann, they have a very good coach. He count on young players and so he pulled out Donovan of this team. Their preraring games ended 2:0 vs Aserbaidschan, 2:1 vs Turkey and 2:1 vs Nigeria. The defense doesnt seems to be mistakeless, so conceding at least 1 goal is thinkable. Furthermore USA scored in their als 6 matches at least 2 goals.
Probable line-up: Howard – Chadler, Cameron, Besler, F.Johnson – J.Jones, Beckerman, Bradley, Bedoya – Dempsey, Altidore
With Gyan, Ayew (Olympique Marseille), Boateng (Schalke 04), Essien (FC Chelsea) and on the other side Dempsey (Seattle Sounders) and Altidore (AFC Sunderland) both teams have a good attack and can score goals. Moreover USA want to take revenge for the 2 last losses against Ghana, the last one in WC 2010, where Gyan scored for Ghana. Also 3 points are important for each side, if they want to surprise in this group. I think this match wont break the row in the world cup by ending under 2,5 goals so i will go for it. Also not even 1 match ended with a draw so i will go with a minimum stake for Ghana, because i think they are better and have the better attack here.
