Ghana defender Harrison Afful has revenge on his mind when the Black Stars paly guests to the United States on July 1.
The two nations have agreed to face each other for the first time in a non-competitive manner after their back-to-back meetings in the last three Fifa World Cup editions at the Pratt & Whitney Stadium in East Hartford, Connecticut.
While the Black Stars prep themselves up for the crucial 2018 World Cup qualifiers under new coach Kwasi Appiah late August, the United States national team hope to use the game to tune-up their side for the Gold Cup tournament which starts on July 7.
But Afful who features for MLS side Columbus Crew in the MLS still has the 1-2 loss to the U.S at the last World Cup still haunting.
“You know, last game (in the 2014 World Cup), the US beat us, so we’re just looking forward to having a great game and maybe we beat them this time around,” he told Columbus Dispatch.
“I think it’s a perfect place to play, especially for us. Hopefully we’ll get a chance, get a call-up and go,” Afful who will not need to travel long distance for the game added.
