The United States was dreading their World Cup draw which included Portugal and Germany. Think about how Ghana feels facing off against a group that has two top five times and the 14th ranked team in the world, the United States.

“I didn’t even think about Germany and Portugal,” Ghana midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah told Goal Ghana. “What came into my mind was, ‘These USA people again?’”

That is because the United States has eliminated Ghana in the past two World Cups.

“I think it is going to be war because they won’t sit back to lose three times to Ghana,” said Asamoah, who plays his club football for Juventus. “It is not going to be easy for only us, but Germany and Portugal too. There is no group favourite.”

“It is all about believe and determination. We are going to do our best to come out,” Asamoah said. “Ghanaians should believe in us because we are the same players that qualified for the World Cup.”
