United States midfielder, Yunus Musah is looking forward to a ”special affair” against against Ghana, the country of his parents.
Musah was born to Ghanaian parents in New York and was eligible to represent the coungtry of his parents but, chose to represent his country of birth.
The 20-year-old is expected to feature when the United States face the Black Stars on Tuesday night.
Speaking ahead of the match, the AC Milan midfielder said: “It’s really special because a lot of people from the Ghanaian community will be watching the game knowing I was eligible to play for Ghana and I have roots from there so it’s a special game,” he said in a pre-match interview.
“I have a lot of family as well from Ghana and they are all going to be watching,” he added.
The two sides head into tonight’s match on the back of defeats from their previous friendlies. The Yankees lost to Germany on Friday night, while the Black Stars lost to Mexico on Saturday.
According to Musah, Ghana will be a different affair.
“They are different teams, obviously. Different qualities and as a said Germany is a completely different team to Ghana so we are trying to analyse them and trying to bounce off from the Germany game,” he continued.
The match will be played at the GEODIA Park, Nashville, Tennessee at 12:30 AM Ghana time.
