World Cup form

United States
Draw England 1-1
Draw Slovenia 2-2
WON Algeria 1-0

The United States had a fairly solid preparation for the World Cup and they took that form into the tournament with three good results.

They were unbeaten during the group stage and were unlucky not to have two wins after a disallowed goal robbed them of a win over Slovenia.

A 90 minute goal to Landon Donovan in the final group game over Algeria saved the USA from certain elimination and enabled them to finish on top of Group C.

WON Serbia 1-0
Draw Australia 1-1
Lost Germany 0-1

Ghana defeated Serbia thanks to a penalty and they were lucky to beat a ten man Australia, where another penalty got them back on level terms, before they were beaten by Germany in their final group game.

The African side will have plenty of support but they are yet to score a goal in general play this tournament and will need to lift for the knockout round.

United States vs Ghana match prediction

The United States appear the more robust combination and they also have a bit more firepower up front to give them a slight edge over Ghana in what looks a fairly even contest.

The African side have not scored a goal from anywhere but the penalty spot during the group stage and they were also unable to score a goal in general play against a ten man Australia side.

It won’t be any easier for the Ghanians to score here against a sound American defence and the USA have been far more impressive than Ghana in this tournament to date.

We are happy to take the $2.50 about the USA to beat the team that sent them home in the 2006 World Cup.
