Andre Ayew: 'No Way' Ghana Loses to US in First World Cup Game

By    |   Monday, 16 Jun 2014 06:03 PM

Ghana’s Andre Ayew said there was "no way" his team would lose to the United States in two teams' opening match Monday in the FIFA World Cup.

Ayew, a midfielder who played in his team’s defeat of the U.S. four years ago, has reason to be confident given that Ghana has defeated the U.S. in the last two World Cups, 2006 in Germany and 2010 in South Africa.

“If we are fit and we are all 100 percent there is no way that we aren’t going to win this game,” Ayew told reporters, adding that he knows the U.S. is looking to avenge their losses. “We have won twice. And as we say there is no two without three, so we want to try and beat them for the third time.”

U.S. goalie Tim Howard said the Ghana team is “very similar” to the team that defeated the United States team four years ago.

“They are strong individually. Obviously, we know how physical they are so we are going to try to match that,” Howard told reporters. “I’ve said it before, very rarely do we get outmatched physically but this is a team that has the possibility of doing that.”

In the meantime, flood warnings have been issued in Natal prior to the Ghana vs. U.S. match up in the city in northeastern Brazil.

The Associated Press is reporting Natal’s government issued the warning over the weekend after two days of nearly constant rain that caused the evacuation of few buildings but no deaths or injuries.
