2014 FIFA World Cup: United States Out For Revenge Against Ghana

The United States is seeking revenge against Ghana when the two teams collide on Monday, June 16. The Ghanians eliminated the Americans in 2006 and 2010.

The United States will be seeking revenge against Ghana in the 2014 FIFA World Cup

This is what Ghana team captain Asamoah Gyan told ESPN's Jeff Carlisle and Doug McIntyre on June 15: 

"Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan believes that the United States will be looking for payback when the two teams kick off their respective World Cup campaigns against each other here Monday evening. 

"'Mentally, they don't want us to beat them for the third time, which is going to make things very, very interesting and difficult for us,' Gyan said Sunday at the Black Stars pre-match press conference. 'But we are focused on the game right now and ready to give it all tomorrow.'

"Ghana eliminated the Americans in the Round of 16 four years ago in South Africa and also beat them at Germany 2006, preventing the U.S. from reaching the second round. Gyan's goal in extra time stood up as the game winner in 2010. 

"The striker, who plays his club football for Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates, also said that while he expects a difficult match on Monday, he believes the Black Stars hold the edge. 

"When asked if he thought Ghana was the more talented squad, Gyan said,'I think so. I think we have young talented players coming up. Talking about the tournament, I think we've got the youngest team. Most of the players are playing well with their clubs. They are in good shape.'

"It remains unclear if Ghana will be boosted by the return of Gyan's strike partner, Majeed Waris. Waris injured his thigh in the team's final warm-up game against Korea Republic, but manager James Kwesi Appiah said that he had yet to decide on what role his forward would play. 

"'Waris has been training the last two days,' Appiah said. 'I'll look at his performance (in training) and decide whether to start him tomorrow.'"

On the other hand, Carlisle wrote a game preview between the two teams in a separate June 15 update

"To that end, Ghana presents an immense challenge, one that goes beyond the World Cup hoodoo over the U.S. Its midfield is stacked with talented players, even if Kwadwo Asamoah slides to left-back as he did in the pre-World Cup win over the Korea Republic. 

"Andre Ayew, Sulley Muntari, Michael Essien, Kevin Prince-Boateng and Mohammed Rabiu are all capable of changing a game on their own the U.S. will need to be mindful of the Black Stars' collective ability while also testing Ghana's defense. 

"Having an in-form striker helps, and while Jozy Altidore's two goals against Nigeria shouldn't be mistaken for a hot streak, he's a threat that Ghana will have to respect. The same is true for the marauding runs of Fabian Johnson, though he'll need to find more consistency in his passes in the defensive and middle thirds of the field. 

 

"And of course, (Michael) Bradley and Clint Dempsey will do their bit to threaten as well. 

"But that is all pregame prognostication. It's time for the U.S. to perform before an expectant fan base both in Natal and back home. Bradley is confident the Americans will deliver."
