Much like his Juventus teammate Martín Cáceres, Kwadwo Asamoah and Ghana enter their second Group G game fighting for their World Cup lives. While Cáceres and Uruguay had a relatively equal opponent in England — subsequently claiming a 2-1 win thanks to some Luis Suárez awesomeness,
The task is a large one if Asamoah and his Ghanian teammates want to say they're entering the final Group G game with a chance to get to the knockout round. After losing to the United States in their opener, now Ghana has to try and slow down a German team that made one of the biggest statements in the first week of the 2014 World Cup.
The insurmountable force that was Germany against Portugal will be looking to storm right through the group stage and into the knockout round without any kind of hiccups whatsoever. The Ghana defense that Clint Dempsey sliced and diced his way through will now try and slow down Thomas Müller, Mesut Özil, Mario Götze and all the other insane attacking talent Germany has on its roster right now.
Good luck, Kwadwo. It could be a busy day no matter what position you're playing against Germany.
