Ghanaian champions Medeama hold their high despite losing 2-1 against DC United in a high -profile international friendly after spirited performance on Saturday.

The match, held at Audi Field, was marked by a competitive spirit as both teams gave their all.

The occasion was more than just a football game; it was part of the celebration of African culture in Washington, D.C. Before kickoff, the Ghanaian national anthem was sung at the stadium.

The game saw D.C United’s assistant coach, Frédéric Brillant, take charge, following the club’s recent parting of ways with head coach Wayne Rooney.

Under Brillant’s leadership, D.C United made a bright start, securing an early lead that they held onto, entering halftime with a 1-0 advantage.

Medeama came back from the break with determination and managed to equaliser through Nurudeen Abdulai. However, D.C United ultimately clinched victory with another goal.
