The Czech Republic flattened the USA 3-0 in its opener while Ghana lost its first ever World Cup match 2-0 to Italy.
The Czechs would be almost guaranteed a spot in the second round with a win. A tie would be almost as good since the Czechs have the best goal difference in Group E.
The big story for the Czechs is the health of strikers Jan Koller and Milan Baros. Baros did not play against the USA and Koller left in the first half with a hamstring injury. Like an NHL coach, Czech manager Karel Bruckner isn't say how badly they are injured and who will play.
Ghana is likely happy to be in Germany and the Black Stars probably have their eyes on their third match against the USA.
