Ghana to play USA in friendly in Nashville October 17

The U.S. Men’s National Team will host Ghana in a high-profile friendly match in October 2023 in preparation for its quarterfinal matches in the Concacaf Nations League the following month.

The Yanks will play the Black Stars of Ghana three days later, in its first visit to GEODIS Park in Nashville, Tenn. TNT and Universo will televise the match with Max and Peacock streaming at 8 p.m. ET, followed by kickoff at 8:30 p.m. ET.

Ghana have twice knocked the United States out of World Cups (2006, 2010) and will be seeking their first win on U.S. soil in the all-time series.

“We have always been looking for these kinds of opportunities to continue our team building exercise so playing against the United States of America has come in handy” President Simeon-Okraku told ghanafa.

‘’We have two more matches to end the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers and would need matches of this nature to prepare for future assignments i.e. the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers and the Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast’’

‘The game presents to us a very good platform to test our strength against one of the best teams in the World’’ President Simeon-Okraku added

Having met four times in their history, the series is perfectly split with each side collecting two wins with matching 2-1 score lines. Remarkably, three of the four meetings have taken place in World Cups, with Ghana getting the edge in the 2006 and 2010 while the USA snatched the opening group game in 2014 in Brazil. Most recently, first-time goal scorers Kellyn Acosta and Dom Dwyer along with a penalty save by goalkeeper Brad Guzan lifted the USA to a 2-1 win on July 1, 2017, in Hartford – the same venue of the upcoming Germany game. Always one of the top contenders in African football, Ghana has qualified for four of the past five World Cups.



While the U.S Men National Team will play at the sparkling new GEODIS Park for the first time, the team is no stranger to Hartford or Nashville.

Rentschler Field at Pratt & Whitney Stadium has played host to USMNT games seven times since 2005. The U.S. collected a 1-0 shutout win at the venue against Trinidad and Tobago during final round qualifying for the 2006 World Cup with Brian McBride notching the game winner. The stadium also hosted a World Cup Send-Off match (2006), a Gold Cup group stage game (2013) and Landon Donovan’s last match for the United States (2014). Overall, the USA is 4-1-2 at the stadium and 5-1-2 in Hartford overall.

Nashville has a similar history as the U.S Men National Team has compiled a 4-2-2 record in Music City across multiple competitions. In 2009, a 19-year-old Jozy Altidore became the youngest U.S. player to score a hat-trick in the 3-0 win against Trinidad & Tobago in World Cup Qualifying. In 2018, Tyler Adams netted his first career international goal in the 1-0 shutout against rivals Mexico, and a year later a Weston McKennie goal plus two from Christian Pulisic paced the U.S. to a 3-1 win against Jamaica in the Concacaf Gold Cup semifinal.
