Ghana Vs USA , Group G - Live Score

TUESDAY 17TH JUNE - 3:30AM (LOCAL) | ESTADIO DAS DUNAS, NATAL

COMPLETED

Ghana USA

Ghana: The African nation had a dream run in the 2010 world cup and was knocked out of the cup in cruel fashion. This time though things look very difficult for the Ghanians as they have been placed with USA, Portugal and Germany. Ghana does boast of some star names like Sulley Muntari and Asamoah Gyan but qualification from the group looks a tall order.

United States: Jurgen Klinsmann’s men qualified for the tournament as CONCACAF toppers but it would still need a miracle of sorts for them to qualify from their group. They have to beat the Ghanians if they are to have any chance of qualifying. They have a very good coach in Jurgen Klinsman and their squad has a mixture of youth and experience. For the Yanks this tournament is all about redefining the US soccer dream.
