The USA will play Ghana today in a knock-out match with hopes of reaching the Quarter finals in World Cup play. The game starts at 1:30 pm Central time (where I live) from Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Rustenburg. The US side has fared well here in previous matches vs Egypt and the UK.
Good luck to the Team this afternoon. I hope we can cope with Ghana's quickness and no doubt will be battling strong home town African support. This is our chance to reverse the outcome of the 2006 game vs Ghana.
US fans are stoked. Football (soccer) is top of mind right now for many and networks are expecting to top the record 13.7 M viewers set during 1994 loss to Brasil.
Prediction: US 2 Ghana 1. No PKs please!
