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 has 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.

GFA President Simeon-Okraku told sports Journalist that; “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.

“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,’’ Simeon-Okraku added.

The imminent task ahead for the Black Stars is the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Madagascar next month.
