5 mins GOAL USA 0-1 Ghana
Stunning start. USA’s Ricardo Clark loses the ball on the halfway line and the ball is soon in Kevin-Prince Boateng’s possession. He races through, seeing off Jay DeMerit and getting to the edge of the box where he slams a low left-foot shot into the bottom corner, What a start for the Africans.
93 mins GOAL USA 1-2 Ghana (Gyan)
Apart from Asamoah Gyan, that is. A long ball from the back from Andre Ayew sees Gyan battling with Carlos Bocanegra and despite a little push from the defender, he keeps his composure to smash a left-foot shot past Tim Howard from 16 yards. Great finish, advantage Ghana again.
