USA captain Dempsey wants sustained form to face Ghana at World Cup

USA captain Clint Dempsey is eyeing a good run of form for his side at the 2014 World Cup in order for them to make it out of a tough group including Germany, Portugal and Ghana.

The Yanks will open their Group G campaign with another World Cup clash against the Black Stars on June 16 in Natal.

The Americans played and lost to Ghana in their previous two meetings at the World Cup – first in the group stage in 2006 and then an epic Round of 16 defeat four years ago in South Africa.

Captain Clint Dempsey who is currently on loan at English club Fulham is counting on his side’s recent good form to get the needed results when the World Cup begins in June.

“Yeah, for sure. You’ve got to think that way. We’re coming off our most successful year with the U.S. National Team and when you get to the World Cup it’s anybody’s game,” he said.

“That’s the beautiful thing about the game of soccer. You’ve gotta go there and be at your best, you’ve got to bring your best.

“When we get to the tournament we have to be hitting top form and if you get the points out of the game, you take every game as it comes and make the most of it and put yourself in a position to get out of the group.”

Dempsey scored against Ghana at the 2006 World Cup but was not enough to avoid a 2-1 defeat for the USA.

    Ghana has a lot of talented players but their problem is they dont play as a team. If they can distribute their balls well, take some good set pieces, get a good goalkeeper and with a little bit of luck they can get to the knockout stages.

  2. Frederick says:

    Ghana too strong for USA they have top players in Europe
