The United States Men’s National Team entry into the World Cup was heightened by their draw into what’s been called the “Group of Death.” The Americans’ first challenge is Ghana, which you can watch live on FilmBar’s big screen Monday, June 16.

While #2 Germany and #3 Portugal are further down the road in Group G, Ghana will be a hearty opponent for the American gents. Though the US outranks The Black Stars according to FIFA, #14 to #38, the Ghanaians possess the upper hand of having ousted the Americans in the first round of the past two World Cups. FilmBar’s fine array of craft beers will make the Yanks’ goals sweeter and alleviate any pain at the feet of Team Ghana.

The live telecast of the United States Men’s National Team vs. Ghana in the World Cup kicks off at FilmBar, 815 North Second Street. The match starts at 3 p.m., and admission is free. Visit or call 602-595-9187.
