Don’t miss the ultimate foodie event, The Baltimore Sun's Secret Supper


Patrick Nyarko, 28, Lakeview (Chicago Fire midfielder)

Do you have a particular tie Ghanaian national team? It was a great feeling to represent my country [in 2012]. The sound of the national anthem before the start of the game sent shivers down my body.

Why are you a fan of this team? They play entertaining soccer.

What do you love about this team? Just the togetherness of the guys on the team and how close they are definitely gives them an edge.

How big would you say the fan base for your team is in Chicago? The fan base is pretty huge in Chicago. There are a lot of Ghanaians residing all over the area.

Where do you like to watch games? If I go out to watch a game, it will either be at The Globe Pub or Fado.

Our team will win the World Cup because … We came close to being in the semifinal of the last event and it's a far better team this year than in 2010.

Our team's most common yell/chant is … "Oseeye Ghanaolo!" (a song, which essentially means "Let's go!")

During games, we have to drink/eat … Guinness.

If you watch only one player on our team, make sure it's … Kwadwo Asamoah is the player to watch because he's a smart, creative player and will be key to Ghana's success.
