Report: Costa Rica, Ghana to face off in international friendly in Los Angeles

June 16, 2014

Costa Rica will battle Ghana in an international friendly in the United States in late May, the Ghana Football Association announced Wednesday night, according to Goal.com.

Ghana would be the Costa Rica national team’s second rival for its two-game tour of the United States, which will take place a few weeks before the 2014 World Cup kicks off in Brazil.

Earlier in the week, the Costa Rican Football Federation (Fedefut) announced that the national team would play two matches in the U.S. before heading to Brazil. The first match would be against Japan in a city in Florida on June 2.

The second opponent hadn’t been announced nor had the date of the match been revealed. But it appears the Black Stars will take on Costa Rica and Honduras in a pair of World Cup warm-ups in Los Angeles (Fedefut had said the game would take place in Denver, and hasn’t confirmed the Ghana match yet, saying it’s only a possibility.).

A date for the Ghana game has not been set, but the national squads are looking to meet in late May. A couple weeks later, Costa Rica will journey to Brazil for its first World Cup match against Uruguay on June 14.

Ghana opens the World Cup on June 16 with a match against the United States. The Black Stars eliminated the U.S. in the 2006 and 2010 World Cups.
