GHANA v USA BETTING PREVIEWGhana played pretty well in AFCON 2013, losing a semi final to Burkina Faso on penalty kicks whilst their 2014 qualifying campaign concluded with a 7-3 aggregate demolition of Egypt. Then, the Black Stars were defeated by Montenegro at Podgorica early in March and sucumbed to the all-powerful Holland side at Rotterdam on the end of May. In their most recent match, they beat 4-0 Korea Republic.
The midfield trio of Andre Ayew, Kevin-Prince Boateng and Kwadwo Asamoah are all gifted footballers currently playing for some of the biggest clubs in Europe. Jordan Ayew, who scored a hat-trick against South Korea, will still play as left winger behind striker Asamoah Gyan.
The US team won their three recent preparation matches- 2:0 against Azerbaijan and 2:1 against Turkey and Nigeria. So they extended the very positive campaign they achieved during the qualification round, where they finished at the top of their group ahead of Costa Rica and Mexico.
Coach Klinsmann brought in a new 4-4-1-1 tactical style, with Dempsey lurking behind the centre forward Altidore. Bayern’s Julian Green, 19, will provide youthful exuberance and an unpredictability coming in from the bench. Anyway, the decision to leave out Landon Donovan, the USA’s top scorer in World Cup finals, may come back to haunt them.
In 2006, the African side won 2-1 in their last game of the group phase, making it to the second round in the process and sending the Americans home. Four years later, it was again a 2-1 in aggregate time in the round of 16.
The fear of a loss in the opening game could be prominent in this game. Furthermore, the rain has not stopped for days in Natal and this could lead to a low scoring first half.
