After knocking the US out in two consecutive World Cups, Ghana feels it has the momentum going into Monday's Group G clash in Natal. In fact, the Black Stars midfielder Andre Ayew said that if his team is healthy, there's no way Ghana doesn't walk away with three points.

"I think if you are a team and you lose twice versus a country, say Ghana, as in 2006 and 2010, if you have the opportunity to meet them in 2014, I think you do everything to beat them. … We have won twice, and as we say, there is no two without three so we want to try and beat them for the third time. We know it is going to be very difficult. They are prepared but we are also prepared. We are not thinking about what the US side can do. I believe in all our players. I believe in the group. If we are fit and we are all 100 percent, there is no way that we aren't going to win this game."

Cheers to qualifying statements.

Ghana striker Majeed Waris did tear his quadricep a week ago, but he trained today and may be healthy enough to start tomorrow night.

The US doesn't need more motivation given that Monday's game is a must-win, but that wasn't a smart thing for the 24-year-old midfielder to spout off.

Here's our preview for Monday's game.
