US men’s national soccer team friendly vs. Ghana: Live stream and TV info, USMNT roster

The U.S. Men’s national soccer team will play the second of two friendlies during FIFA’s scheduled October international break against Ghana on Tuesday.

The first friendly on Saturday did not go great for the USMNT, as Germany — a nation that boasts a four-time World Cup champion — came into Pratt & Whitney Stadium in East Hartford, Connecticut, and delivered a humbling 3-1 lesson for coach Gregg Berhalter’s young squad. Christian Pulisic provided the lone highlight for the USMNT, but it was a doozy, bending a gorgeous shot past goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen and into the top corner.

The USMNT gets a bounce-back opportunity against Ghana, a nation with which the U.S. Has shared a surprising extent of World Cup history. The first notable encounter happened at the 2006 World Cup, when Ghana’s 2-1 win eliminated the U.S. From the competition. The next matchup came during the 2010 World Cup, when the U.S. Fell to Ghana 2-1 in the Round of 16 just three days after Landon Donovan’s epic goal against Algeria. Finally, the USMNT got some measure of payback against Ghana at the 2014 World Cup, when John Brooks’ late goal made the U.S. 2-1 winners in both teams’ tournament opener.
