Asamoah: 'These USA People Again?'

MOST COMMENTED

In an interview, Ghana midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah says he’s not even concerned with Germany and Portugal, the two European giants that the Black Stars were drawn with in Group G at the World Cup this summer. "I didn't even think about Germany and Portugal," the Juventus midfielder told Goal.com. "What came into my mind was, 'These USA people again?'"

Indeed, Ghana has played and eliminated the United States from the last two World Cups, first beating the Stars and Stripes 2-1 in the final group stage game in 2006 and then again in the Round of 16 in 2010. Their group stage clash on June 16 will be the third straight World Cup in which the two teams have faced each other.

"I think it is going to be war because they won't sit back to lose three times to Ghana," Asamoah said. "It is not going to be easy for only us, but Germany and Portugal too. There is no group favorite."
