Ghana Represent Africa in Top Sixteen

Group E Match

Ghana vs USA
Nürnberg

Previous Encounters:
Ghana and United States had never met before the Germany 2006 World Cup Finals.

The Match:
With Czech Republic and Italy still without a goal, Ghana took the lead in Nürnberg in the 22nd minute; as Haminu Dramani dispossessed Claudio Reyna and ran into the left side of the penalty area to slip the ball past Kasey Keller.

Italy took the lead in the other game, just four minutes later, so if things stayed like this Italy and Ghana would qualify.

Clinton Dempsey equalised for United States two minutes before the break, as Czech Republic had a player sent off in the other game.

Then dramatically here in Nürnberg, Ghana were awarded a penalty in injury time and Stephen Appiah slammed the spot-kick into the roof of the net.

Half-time: (2:1).

United States couldn't get back on level terms in the second-half and Bruc Arena shock his head knowingly, as the five minutes of time added on started to run out.

Ghana made sure that Africa would be represented among the top sixteen countries in the world.

Final Score:
Ghana 2 - United States 1
