MATCH STORY

Despite sharing no geographic borders with them, the Ghanaian national team have developed quite the rivalry with the American national team. The roots of that rivalry trace back to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, when Ghana met the U.S. in the Round of 16. Kevin-Prince Boateng gave Ghana a dream start in the 5th minute when he pounced on a turnover in midfield and fired one past Tim Howard. But the Americans equalized from the spot just after the hour-mark courtesy of Landon Donovan. Ultimately, the sides would require extra time to determine a winner at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium — though the fans there wouldn’t have to wait long for the difference-maker. Asamoah Gyan chased down a long ball and held off to American defenders before scoring the decider in the 93rd minute, hoisting Ghana into the final eight for the first time.

DESIGN STORY

The match side of the wristband mimics Ghana’s standard white kits with the match boundaries marked by traditional Ghanian kente cloth patterns. The reverse side features a design inspired by Ghana’s flag and the origin of the team nickname of the “Black Stars’.
