Ghana has eliminated the U.S. from the last two World Cups -- which is either a good sign or a bad sign for Ghana, depending on how you read it.
Black Stars' midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah is leaning toward the negative for his country, which was drawn into a tough group that includes Germany and Portugal in addition to Ghana and the U.S.
When the pairings were announced, Asamoah told Gold Ghana he "didn't even think about Germany and Portugal. What came into my mind was 'these USA people again?' "
Ghana opens World Cup play against the Americans on June 16 in Natal, Brazil, and Asamoah, who plays for Italian side Juventus, says the match will be about revenge.
