[World Cup] Key Player Review: Ghana – Kwadwo Asamoah

A team full of tactically disciplined and physically impressive footballers, Ghana are accustomed to playing on the counter-attack but can struggle when attempting to break down inferior opposition.

Their plan A will suffice against Germany and Portugal, but in the opening game against USA they must start strongly and break down a resilient opposition.

Asamoah started as a playmaker and is now more of a wing-back at Juventus, but for the national team, he retains the guile and technical quality of his younger years.

Capable of throwing a stepover before playing a clever pass into the box, it’s that ingenuity rather than his pure stamina that Ghana need this summer.
