The U S men’s national football team will host four-time world champions Germany and Ghana in two high-profile friendly matches in October 2023 in preparation for their quarterfinal matches in the Concacaf Nations League the following month.

The Stars and Stripes face Die Mannschaft on Saturday (14 October) in Hartford, Conn, the Ghana FA announced on its website on Tuesday.

The Yanks will play the Black Stars of Ghana three days later, in their first visit to GEODIS Park in Nashville, Tenn. TNT and Universo will televise the match with Max and Peacock streaming at 8 p.m. ET, followed by kickoff at 8:30 p.m. ET.

Ghana have twice knocked the United States out of World Cups (2006, 2010) and will be seeking their first win on U.S. soil in the all-time series.

“We have always been looking for these kinds of opportunities to continue our team building exercise so playing against the United States of America has come in handy,” Ghana FA boss Kurt Simeon-Okraku said.

‘’We have two more matches to end the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers and would need matches of this nature to prepare for future assignments i.e. the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers and the Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.

“The game presents to us a very good platform to test our strength against one of the best teams in the world,” Simeon-Okraku added.
