Stephen Appiah also sees USA as Ghana's toughest World Cup opponent

Stephen Appiah sees USA as tough customers

Ex-Ghana captain Stephen Appiah agrees with claims that USA will be the country’s toughest opponents at next year’s World Cup.

Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah has insisted Jurgen Klinsman’s men will be the biggest threat to his team’s chances of doing well at the global showpiece in Brazil.

The African giants have beaten the Americans twice in 2006 and 2010 and will be keen to avenge the two defeats suffered at the hands of the Black Stars.

Appiah, who captained the Ghanaians to the two previous world cups which included wins over the Americans feels they will be the toughest ahead of Germany and Portugal.

“Yeah he (Kwasi Appiah) is right. We (Ghana) beat them on two occasions and we are going to meet them again so maybe I think now they have done their home-work,” he told CampioneSports

“They don’t want us to beat them for the third time so I mean though people are talking about Germany and Portugal but I think the difficult match will be against the USA.”

The ex-Juventus star is expected to be among the backroom members of Kwesi Appiah’s men for the global showpiece.

    These are stupid assessments. The whole of German team, ensemble, had to struggle so much before overcoming a not too strong Ghana squad 1-0 in the 2010 world cup. Just because the USA has a german coach doesn’t mean they have such a great advantage to beat Ghana. That’s ridiculous. The reality is, the US has all the pressure to turn the tables this time on the Ghana team which is better than theirs. In other words, they’ll be biting more than they can chew. Didn’t we exhibit these same fears when facing Egypt? And we know what happened. I do not thing the USA national team can overcome Egypt at the world cup, let alone GHANA. They’ll be lucky to get away with a close shave defeat this time around.
