6:16pm: At a second attempt at goal, Ghana goes up-field with Atsu switching to send a dangerous ball to Gyan. Howard clears a second attempt on goal.
6:18 pmGhana inches possession ahead.
6:24 pm Jozy Altidore goes down after a hamstring injury. He was the main hope for the U.S. as a forward.
Twitter fans get anxious:
Bill McKenna @
@ Oh man, I really wanted Jozy Altidore to have a good tournament to shut up all the haters.
6:43pm: The U.S. continues its bad luck with injuries after Besler pulls his hamstring, but he decides to play on.
Halftime: 1-0 US – Ghana
7:06pm: Besler substituted by John Brooks after hearing ‘tightness in the hamstring.’
7:15pm: Another piece of trivia, Dempsey’s goal was sixth fastest in the tournament’s history.
7:40pm It looks like the U.S. is having a tough time containing Ghana as their subs coming in. And corners and tactical moves from the Americans are being foiled by the Ghana defense. To make things worse, Ghana has possession most of the time over the
U.S. – 59 to 41%.
Finally Ghana scores with Andrew
Ayew running away from the goal and nudges a shot past goalkeeper Howard with the right side of his foot.
Zusi’s corner finds John Brooks who heads into the net from just seven yards. That seals the game and Brooks
he’s done the ‘spectacular.’
